Guide to Hout Bay Holiday Rentals & Luxury Accommodation
Book your self-catering holiday accommodation in Hout Bay for a unique vacation experience. Hout Bay is a beautiful and sometimes underappreciated coastal village between Constantia and Llandudno. The town features its own local beach, harbor, bird sanctuary and some fantastic restaurants. Hout Bay is home to some very beautiful holiday homes, luxury villas and apartments. Our personal favorite is “The Village Apartments” which are situated on Hout Bay’s Beach Road. The block has direct access to the beach, a communal salt water pool and is within walking distance to the best shops and restaurants in Hout Bay.
Hout Bay Introduction
As you travel South along the coastal road, past Camps Bay, Bakoven and Llandudno you reach what the more ‘patriotic’ locals like to call ‘the republic of Hout Bay.’
This picturesque community over the mountain was founded in the 1670s amongst what was then a very lush and green coastline. Contrasting to the pristine stretch of white sandy beach, the remnants of this are still clear by looking at the surrounding forests and woodland areas. This is a place that offers endless things to do for families and groups who are looking for an activity filled holiday.
The beach, with its placid water and protected nature it is ideal for sunbathing, swimming, scuba diving and an array of other watersports. Take a walk down to the working harbor and be mesmerized by the ongoings of the fishermen bringing in their haul. Watch the seals weave between the boats and if you get there on the right day, watch the show as the fishermen feed them. If you are peckish yourself, Snoekies should be your next stop, a local favorite. The English like to boast about theirs being the best, but nothing beats the fish and chips you will find here. The atmosphere and friendliness that comes with it also make it that much better. Across the lot, you will find the Harbour Bay market. A weekly setup, that boasts arts and crafts from the local community as well as tasty treats to satisfy your every craving. A must see while in this little corner of paradise.
