A quaint fishing village, Hout Bay is also a popular weekend getaway known for its scenic harbor. Surrounded by mountains and offering access to a picturesque bay, the town and harbor, teeming with fishing boats, offer a bustling dining scene, hailed for its freshly caught seafood. Besides fishing and lounging on the sandy beach, you can find a "Big Wave Spot" off the village coast, where waves can swell up to 14 m (47 ft). Have a picnic, visit the town's famous bird park, or take a boat trip to admire the Cape fur seals on a nearby island. Planning Cape Town trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.
