  • It is a small town in front of Borders Beach, famous for its penguins. You can also see the colorful huts along the coast that look good in the pictures of Cape Town. It takes less than an hour to drive from downtown Cape Town. You can enjoy the beautiful coastline as you walk through the winding along the mountain.

  • Fish Hoek beach is on False Bay and one of the prettiest beaches on the Cape Peninsular. We saw dolphins bait balling close to shore as we were driving close to Fish Hoek.  more »
