Hout Bay is one of South Africa’s most renowned beauty spots, a dramatic, picturesque valley surrounded by stately mountains, covered in rich oak, pine forests and lush green meadows.
A picturesque river runs through a small natural harbour into the circular bay where it meets the majestic Atlantic Ocean.
Take a drive on Chapman’s Peak where you can experience spectacular views and great whale spotting opportunities. Without question it is one of the most scenic drives in the world.
Take a gentle walk to the nearby bustling village with its mixture of quaint shops, bistros and restaurants.
Within Hout Bay there is an extensive range of activities to enjoy such as relaxing sunset cruises, boat trips to Seal Island or wandering through the World of Birds (Africa's biggest bird park). If you’re looking for something more active try your hand at deep-sea fishing, scuba diving, sailing or even windsurfing.
Drive along the awe-inspiring M6 Victoria Road which goes through the trendy beach suburb of Camps Bay, known for its fashionable sundowner spots and beach activities. From there one can continue to the bustling V&A Waterfront that offers an array of fine boutiques, restaurants and a working harbour where visits to Robben Island can be arranged. Within easy reach is the heart of Cape Town where the Mother City offers a wide range of entertainment and shopping including the nation’s Parliament.
The magnificent wonders of the Cape Peninsula are on our doorstep and an exploration of the Cape Winelands and the magnificent Karoo are a must.
We will be extremely happy to arrange tailor-made tours of Cape Town for you, so you won’t miss anything that will make your stay at Hout Bay Manor a truly memorable occasion.
