    CAPE POINT,VERY RUGGED

    Hout Bay was also a beautiful beach and it was safe to swim.Cruises depart from here to Duiker Island,with its fur seals.There were also a few bars,restaurants to eat at too. False Bay is south-east of Cape Town.This beach is on the indian ocean side.The sea here was nice and warm.During oct-nov whales come here.They come in quite close to the shore. Gordons Bay is a small beach with a canpsite close by.I found this beach the best in the area. Sandy Bay is a nudist beach.I did not go here. Long Beach is popular with surfers and has a caravan park.

    A very nice place to visit and have some of the best fish in Cape Town. You can also buy nice fresh fish at the harbour to put on the braai (BBQ)

    After our visit to the village, we made a stop for lunch at this viewpoint, for great views of the city´s bay.

    Coastal road from Seapoint to Hout bay

    We drove this route a few times just because it is so lovely. Beautiful seaviews, mountains and mansions glued onto the mountain.
