Hout Bay is widely regarded as the most picturesque bay in South Africa and is one of the most beautiful and popular places on the Cape Peninsula and a highlight of any visit to Cape Town. Hout Bay is the centre of the crayfish and snoek fishing industry, and its fishing harbour gives the little coastal town a lively atmosphere. But today, its main economic contributor is tourism. After all, the attractions of this beautiful situated place are numerous. Other than hiking, sailing, surfing, kayaking, fishing, cycling, having a picnic or sun tanning at the beach, there is not much one can’t do in Hout Bay.
