    Fish Hoek

    Along the False Bay coast road from Simon`s Town lies the placid town of Fish Hoek. Most of the residents are retired but it still has a busy main street with market stalls competing with shoppers on the pavements. The long sandy beach is one of the safest in the Cape for bathing and body boarding and when the wind picks up, hobie-cats and windsurfers take to the waves.

    From July to October whales come into Fish Hoek bay and loll around just 50 metres from the shore in preparation for mating and giving birth. Huge schools of dolphins are also sometimes seen.

    Fish Hoek , Indian Ocean beach

    Fish Hoek is a fantastic swimming spot as it is protected from the worst of the wind, and is placid and is warmer than the beaches on the Atlantic coast. Fish Hoek still retains a holiday town atmosphere even though it is not as upmarket as say Camps bay and Clifton.

    Nice beach outside of Cape Town, on the way to the cape. You can have a cold dip in the Atlantic Ocean there.
