Hout Bay’s local color, scenery and numerous attractions make it a popular place for both local and international visitors. It is an historic, and still working, fishing village situated in a valley on the Atlantic seaboard in the Western Cape, twenty kilometres south of the Cape Town CBD. It has a sheltered white sand beach and features one of the busiest fishing harbours in the Western Cape.
To the north, east and west, Hout Bay is surrounded by mountains, with the southern Atlantic Ocean lying to the south. The Table Mountain National Park borders the suburb to the north, with the backside of the Twelve Apostles mountain range bordering Hout Bay to the north-west. The western border is formed by Little Lion’s Head, Karbonkelberg, Kaptein’s Peak and The Sentinel. To the east, Hout Bay is bordered by the Vlakkenberg, Skoorsteenskopberg and Constantiaberg.
