Hout Bay Overview

Hout Bay at a glance

With only three entry points, Hout Bay feels like a world apart from Cape Town - despite only being 20 minutes away from the hustle and bustle. Residents often refer to it affectionately as “The Republic of Hout Bay.”

The area has blossomed into a sought-after area from its beginnings as a fishing village with the atmosphere of a country town. Today that atmosphere can still be felt due to the commitment of the residents to keep the neighbourhood as vegetated as possible amidst the development.

Getting into Cape Town from Hout Bay offers three distinct possibilities, all of which are scenic drives. Chapman’s Peak, although a toll road, remains one of the most beautiful and awesome routes with views to take your breath away, whilst the route over Suikerbossie Hill to Llandudno and other Atlantic beaches of Cape Town, in the shadow of the Twelve Apostles, is equally inspiring. The road that joins up with the Constantia Wine Route, over Constantia Nek, provides a bird’s eye view of False Bay and takes you into the beautiful Constantia Valley.

Apart from the local restaurants that are quite popular over the weekends, there is also some great outdoor activities for residents who prefer the wilder side of life. From hiking to mountain biking, Hout Bay offers some incredible scenery along the routes in the mountains.

With Cape Town just around the corner residents are never short of entertainment options - but who would want to leave one of the most picturesque neighbourhoods in South Africa?
