After a bracing walk on the beach do call in for Coffee at The Sentinel Cafe right on the beach .
Support the local community and enjoy really great coffee ☕️

It took me a little bit less than an hour by MiCii Bus from Green Point in Cape Town to get to this beach (bus stop Northshore). Perhaps of all the (harbour) activity around, the beach is not as appealing as Camps Bay or Llandudno. Still in combination with exploring the port with the piers and fish restaurants, it is a nice outing. Within walking distance from the beach is the embarkation point for the cruise to Duikers Island.

The view is beautiful, the beach needs a MAJOR cleanup. It literally stinks. The municipality should clean up the beach on a regular basis, the old stinking kelp that washes up on this beach basks in the sun and starts to rot and stink. Generally a fishy smelling beach but worse is the muck on the beautiful soft sand. Not pleasant at all. Rather drive further to Llundando for a clean beach experience. Come on Republic of Hout Bay, you can and should do better.

This is a wonderful beech and generally not too busy, if you want to get away from the crowds. Good choice of places to eat and to walk to your hearts content. It is also kept clean and tidy.

A lovely place for a stroll as long as the wind isn't blowing. Also a nice place to swim if you don't mind the cold water.

We called here on a Sunday afternoon after doing the Chapman's Peak Drive from Noordhoek. Plenty of free parking right on the front and further back there are decent bars, cafes and restaurants etc. Could do with more seats on the front.

Quite a nice, long beach with lovely views in all directions but for some reason that I can't really explain, it doesn't really do it for me. In my opinion there are nicer beaches in the area. I may be wrong but perhaps it is more of a locals beach than a tourist beach.

Great place to spend the time, a lot happening despite rather cold waters even in summer. Great walkways and restaurants in all price classes. Like it.

This is a beautiful stretch of beach to take a walk. There is plenty of parking and the facilities are well maintained.

This has to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the cape and is safe for kids and pets. Strolling along this beach is so pacifying and relaxing. Must do.

We have walked this beach with its soft sand many times over the years. Parking is easy and safe. The only (-) point is that some locals don’t bother to pick up after their dog/s which is selfish for everyone else. But don’t let this put you off as it is only the hard of thinking minority. The views are spectacular.
