Once you’ve built up a bit of an appetite, it’s time to head over to Harbour House Restaurant in Kalk bay, to indulge in some delectable fresh seafood and cocktails while waves batter at the windows and breakwater by your feet. Elegant and sophisticated, this seaside venue offers unparalleled views across False Bay.
A weekly event that has meteorically risen in popularity is the Bay Harbour Market. Housed in a once abandoned factory at the harbours edge in Hout Bay, over 100 entrepreneurs, foodies and creatives display their goods at a market that draws over 24,000 people a month. The Saturday and Sunday market is open from 9.30 am to 4 pm, and the strict vendor criteria ensure that every stall brings something unique to the trestle table. Exciting foods explore over 26 different culinary styles and antiques, linens, leathers and fashion. There are ample activities for all ages and many little treasures to be uncovered. Seeing as this forms part of the coastal drive which goes from Cape Town, past kilometers of white sand beaches and all the way to Cape Point, it is a “must-include” on your sightseeing itinerary.
The V&A Waterfront is one of Cape Town’s most well-known tourist attractions, a fully operational harbour set amidst a world class shopping mall. Spectacular apartments line the sailing marina and surround The One and Only Hotel. The Clock Tower, the Time Ball Tower and the various boat tours and activities are all popular year round attractions.
