Cape Town - Fishhoek
Geography and History
Fish Hoek is a quaint coastal town set between ocean and mountain at the mouth of the Silver mine River on the False Bay side of the Cape Peninsula, in the Western Cape province of South Africa. This is one of the few original villages along the Cape coast that has retained its former character, and it is home to many small and interesting shops.
Fish Hoek is situated in a bay at the end of a broad, low valley, between two and three kilometres wide, which runs from East to west across the Cape Peninsula from Fish Hoek on the False Bay side to Noordhoek and Kommetjie on the Atlantic side.
Fish Hoek has a variety of accommodation options available from Guest Houses, Bed and Breakfasts to Self-catering units.
For the tourist, Cape Town offers a variety of activities and attractions, such as the Two Oceans Aquarium, Ratanga Junction Theme Park, Canal Walk Shopping Centre, craft markets, the BMW Pavilion, IMAX Theatre and numerous shopping centres.
This seaside village is surrounded by rugged mountains and boasts one of the safest swimming beaches in Cape Town. Fish Hoek is a glorious bay with a beautiful white sandy beach, with colourful Victorian bathing boxes that add a festive flavour.
The beach is a favourite with wind surfers, lifesavers and hobie cat sailers.
There are many restaurants on offer to suit every visitors budget. There is a great selection of restaurants, coffee shops and pubs to choose from!
