A scenic 20-minute drive from Cape Town lies the cosy village of Hout Bay. The peaceful country atmosphere, despite some development, is what makes the bay so popular among locals and visitors. 

 

This former fishing village is known to its residents as the Republic of Hout Bay mainly due to the limited means of access into this attractive suburb. It is a popular spot for those wanting to enjoy a splendid seafood meal while enjoying suburb views of the harbour and surrounding mountains.

 

Hout Bay’s wide flat beach lies in a protected bay between Chapman’s Peak and Mount Sentinel and the water is not too cold for swimming, especially on a hot summer’s day.

 

If you’re a keen walker the beaches around Hout Bay are wonderful for long walks, and The Sentinel is a popular climb. Adventure lovers might also enjoy kayaking, mountain biking, fishing charters and jet skiing, all available in Hout Bay.

 

Property in Hout Bay consists of houses, apartment, equestrian farms, smallholdings, vacant land as well as several holiday home options.
