We went during the week so maybe that was why it wasn't crowded, but it's a lovely beach with the mountains around and the small dunes at the back. Very nice to sit and enjoy the view. Great beach for us as this was where...More

The long stretch of unspoilt sandy beach at Houtbay is not only beautiful but also very pleasant to walk on, but during windy weather the sand can sting.

When staying in Hout Bay we have walked the superb beach on many occasions, but were so unhappy to learn/read of some crimes committed there. Probably best to walk in the day time although this can be too hot on occasions. Such a shame.

Lovely clean beach. Generally very quiet and, unlike many other nearby beautiful beaches, is not spoiled by lots of shops and/ or busy roads . This is a peaceful beach to saunter along or to just sit on and watch the world go by.
