A suburb of Cape Town, surrounded by the ocean and the Constantia Mountains, with a character of its own. Only 20 minutes by car from the center of Cape Town it has a lively atmosphere, you can sail, surf or fish here.

Hout Bay is the centre for crayfish and snoek fishing. But today, its main economic contributor is tourism. After all, the attractions of this beautifully situated place are numerous.
