Fish Hoek is a glorious bay with a beautiful white sandy beach! Fish Hoek Gallery situated right on the beach offers a restaurant and take-aways and is a prime whale watching site to view the Southern Right Whales when they are in the bay to calf between July and November. Boat-based whale watching is a fantastic way to interact with these gigantic & magnificent mammals. An experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life!
And if you travel a couple of hours you can experience a great white shark up close and personal with a Shark Diving Tour! This is a very popular tourist attraction and you don't need a scuba diving certificate to shark cage dive. Great White Shark Cage Diving takes place all year round from Gansbaai.
A popular tourist stop in the area is Boulders Beach in Simons Town, because of a colony of African Penguins. From just two breeding pairs in 1982, the penguin colony has grown to about 3,000 birds in recent years. Boardwalks take visitors to within a few meters of the birds!
If you continue south for about 30 minutes you will come to Cape Point. Outstanding beautiful!
There is also a wide range of sports activities in the area. A South African rafting company and kayak shop located in Fish Hoek provides exclusive River Rafting experiences to all those who need to get back to nature and leave the city behind.
Muizenberg Beach (10 min from Fish Hoek) is possibly one of the best beaches to learn to surf at in South Africa! Gently breaking, sand bottomed waves, ensure that your introduction to the awesome sport of surfing will be a fun filled, thrilling & possibly life changing experience. You will find custom-designed programs that are ideal for both first time beginners and those who have surfed before.
If you want to play golf, Clovelly Golf Club is very close to the guesthouse. Clovelly ranks as one of the finest courses in the Cape Peninsula. Famous for its rolling fairways and undulating holes. This picturesque 18 hole course is complemented by the rich coastal environment, natural sand dunes & water features.
