Hout Bay, once a sleepy little fishing village,is now a popular tourist attraction attracting local and international visitors. Coffee shops and restaurants line the streets, and the two hotels (Hout Bay Manor and the Chapman's Peak Hotel) are popular watering holes. The harbour is a worthwhile visit, as there are spectacular views of the bay and boat rides to Duiker Island and around the Sentinel, a small peak that juts out into the bay.
The Hout Bay Yacht Club is situated in the harbour and provides moorings for both recreational, fishing and sailing boats
At the harbour, there are wonderful seafood restuarants,with the freshest seafood. Sit outside, eat, and watch the fishing boats coming home, laden with the days catch.
