Transcript

  • 1. Heavenly Hout Bay Discover Valley Living
  • 2. Introduction Nestled in a valley on the Atlantic Seaboard of the Cape Peninsula, the rustic suburb of Hout Bay is surrounded by mountain on three sides and the ocean on one. It is home to one of the Western Cape’s busiest harbours and is well known for its snoek, tuna and crayfish industry.
  • 3. Chapman’s Peak After being closed for many years, Chapman’s Peak drive was re-opened in 2004. It connects Hout Bay to Noordhoek and Cape Point, and one has to pay a toll fee in order to use the road. The drive provides a stunning view of the actual bay and there are a few lookout points along the way, enabling you to hop out and take some pictures of the breath-taking scenery.
  • 4. Surfing Hout Bay beach offers white sands and is popular with locals and visitors alike. The beach is referred to as “Dungeons” by the surfing community and it one of 16 recognized big wave spots in the world. Hout Bay plays host to the annual Red Bull Big Wave Africa surfing competition.
  • 5. Mariner’s Wharf The first harbourfront emporium in Africa and the Southern hemisphere, Mariner’s Wharf is a maritime hub. Take a stroll along the boardwalk and explore the many restaurants, markets and stores, all while breathing in the clean, salt air. Try the Wharfette Bistro’s delicious specialty fish and chips – it’s a must!
