Hout Bay in Cape Town is terrific

Article content

17 December 2009

People taking holidays in South Africa should ensure they include a trip to Hout Bay in Cape Town, it has been suggested.

Writing for The Times, Clive Rice praised the region for offering travellers a chance to see a wide range of exotic wildlife.

"There are 250 different species of birds off this coastal area of the Cape. Driving there is in itself picturesque and the fishing is terrific," he commented.

Mr Rice added that he himself managed to catch a 68 kg tuna when visiting the location - the largest he has caught.

More adventurous holidaymakers should stop at nearby Seal Island, he stated, as it attracts great white sharks, which tourists can view from inside a cage under the water.

In an article for the Guardian, Josh Hawks recently advised people to go to Cape Town and experience its diversity of people and places.

Studies have shown it has the largest levels of mixed ancestry in the world, he explained.
