"Hout Bay" Beaches Tip by Jenniflower

Beaches, Cape Town: 12 reviews and 10 photos

  Hout Bay
by Jenniflower

Beautiful and quaint Hout Bay can be reached by three windy roads only... and over mountains... it is a little out of the way, and has the name 'Republic of Hout Bay because of it :)

The access road that runs from Camps Bay, offers a beautiful drive all along the sea form Hout Bay to Cape Town This is the side where the sun sets, so it's a good idea to have a cocktail/some wine handy :)

The Karbonkel Mountain lies to the one side of this protected valley, the well known Mount Sentinel to the other side (looking out to the sea), and the Constantia Mountains and Chapman?s Peak itself on the other side.
