Hout Bay Mountain Retreat
- 4 Heathcliff, Tierboskloof Estate, Hout Bay, 7806, Western Cape
Hout Bay, or the Republic of Hout Bay as it is affectionately known by locals, is a fantastic sea-side neighbourhood in Cape Town that offers something for everyone, any day of the week.
You will find yourself staring out to sea when you arrive in Hout Bay. The views in this sociable village are mesmerizing as Hout Bay is set in a fold of sea-lapped mountains that look out across the Atlantic Ocean. The town is presided over by the Sentinel – guardian of Hout Bay’s treasures. A horse-lovers paradise, there are many farms and stables and a sunset ride on the beach should definitely be on your holiday bucket list.
Constantia Nek connects Hout Bay with the popular wine route in Constantia and also offers a plethora of restaurants, shops and a food market that is a must see. Our favourite wine farm is Buitenverwachting, where you can absorb the serene atmosphere of the vineyards while eating gourmet food and sipping on world class wine. Please book well in advance for your picnic as it is very popular!
The protective mountains surround Hout Bay and the long sandy beach which is ideal for swimming and water sports like sea kayaking, sailing, fishing and surfing. You will see locals walking their dogs, riding horses and families playing at the water’s edge. The mountains provide excellent hiking opportunities.
The main street in Hout Bay is full of interesting shops and there is an excellent craft market on the green every Sunday. People sit chatting in local cafes as they sample
