Such a variety of things to do, from the World of Birds, a trip to Seal Island, and great seafood at Mariners Wharf.Our friends wowed about the fish and chips at "Fish on the Rocks". Unspoilt beaches and fantastic mountain views.

Hout Bay picturesque ans spotThe Sentinel rock. Coffee stop on way to the Cape. Souvenirs available. Seal Island trip fab but a bit scary with proximity of rocks and heavy swell. Minstrel band excellent on return from trip which is bout 45 mins. Have a few coins ready.

It was raining the day we were there but it was a nice stop on the way to Cape Point. It is a bit more touristy then other points along the way

Nice place to observe the sea lions on a small rocky island (one hour round trip). If the wheather is windy, the trip with the boat can be adventurous
