Mariners Wharf at Hout Bay Harbour, the Fairest Cape in the whole wide world

As Sir Francis Drake described it, more than four centuries ago, Hout Bay is the most beautiful Cape in the whole wide world.

The Hout Bay Harbour

Hout Bay is without a doubt, South Africa's most charming fishing village, yet it wasnt that long ago when Hout Bay was regarded as Cape Town's outback, and apart from the tradesmen visiting and passing through, the harbour was only rarely visited.

Today this harbour has taken it's rightful place as a premier tourist destination, with tens of thousands of visitors passing through each day, in season time. It offers an array of things to see and do, from local markets to restaurants and gift shops. The harbour is very popular for bringing in huge quantities of crayfish (lobster) tuna and snoek. In fact a very old fish outlet called Snoekies which dates back to 1956.

Today the harbour flourishes with life and people from all cultures, and is by far at the very top of places to see in Cape Town.
