Fish Hoek Area Guide

Fish Hoek Overview

Fish Hoek is a seaside town on False Bay about 30 minutes drive south of the city. It is also accessible via the train line. It is characterised by a beautiful bay with a great beach for families. There is nothing of interest architecturally in the town, as it is a mixture of very ordinary residential dwellings. The main street is relatively unattractive and is home to practical every day shops with no real draw cards. Go to Kalk Bay for quaint restaurants, touristy shops and a real village atmosphere.

Fish Hoek Attractions

Fish Hoek has a lovely beach and if you stay on the hillside, it offers spectacular views. The southern peninsula is easily accessible, including Simonstown, Boulders Beach and Cape Point Nature Reserve.
