“This Cape is a most stately thing and the fairest cape we saw in the whole circumference of the Earth.”

Oh  dear - What have we done!


Welcome to the third oldest surviving formal settlement in South Africa.
Hout Bay is the third oldest formal settlement in South Africa. It’s modern history goes back to the establishment of Cape Town in 1652 but it was visited by the Portuguese and the British many years before. The Goringhaicona and previous nomadic Khoina clans may have frequented the area  for a thousand years or more previously. Hout Bay is about 20 Km South of Cape Town on the Westward side of the Cape Peninsula,
the most southern tip being the Cape of Good Hope.  About 75% of the Peninsula is comprised of Table Mountain National Park, a World Heritage site in which Hout Bay is an enclave.
Table Mountain was recently acclaimed as one of the modern “Natural Wonders of the World “. Hout Bay and Cape Town are rightly proud of the fact.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our site!
