Hout Bay is basically Eden. This ecological utopia has everything a nature lover could want, from imposing mountains and miraculous views (check out the 12 Apostles) to World of Birds, the largest bird park in Africa, home to 3,000 birds and over 100 walk-through aviaries. On weekends, you can shop for food crafts at the lively market near lively food-and-craft market at the end of the harbor road. Besides Chapman’s there are two other roads into Hout Bay, one from Constantia and another that passes the gorgeous surfer beach of Llandudo (which is also the exit for Sandy Bay, a nudist beach).
