There is a reason why the village is known as “The Republic of Hout Bay”. The village offers a host of opportunities for arts and crafts, is the home of the world famous World of Birds and offers some of the most spectacular drives and views in the country.
The regular Sunday craft market in the village common will take up most of your morning, while regular trips out to Seal Island in the glass-bottom boat will leave you with memories of the sea-wild. A leisurely stroll around the working fishing harbour, combined with a visit to the Fisheries Museum and Mariners Wharf complex will compliment the day with wonderful memories of days gone by.
The “Republic” offers something for all, and the local cuisine is no exception. The renowned Snoekies, offering freshly cooked fish for decades is open to late, while you can get anything from a cool drink and ice cream to a full meal at Muriel’s Munchies. And then for that evening braai you can buy the freshest fish on the quay at Fish 4 Africa.
For nature lovers the bay offers whale watching between August to November, or for the more adventurous, diving or deep sea fishing is an adventurers delight.
Hout Bay offers all the modern supermarkets and facilities, but nothing beats the day like ending it off on a Sunset Champagne boat cruise
