The beach in Fish Hoek is known to be the safest beach on the Cape Peninsula.

Fish Hoek Beach, South Africa
Along the False Bay coast road, about 10 km (6.2 miles) north of Simon's Town, lies the placid town of Fish Hoek. The long stretch of white sand on Fish Hoek Beach is one of the safest places to swim in the Cape Peninsula, if not in the whole country.

Fish Hoek Galley, situated right on the beach offers a restaurant and take-outs and is a prime whale watching site to view the Southern Right Whales when they are in the bay to calf between July and November.

False Bay is stretching from Cape Point on the peninsula to the charming villages of Simon's Town, Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay, St. James, Muizenberg all the way to Hangklip, close to Pringle Bay.

False Bay's water is 5°C (41 F) warmer than the Atlantic Seaboard. Visit the Penguin sanctuary at Boulders Beach near Simon's Town as well as Scratch Patch and Cape Point.

This seaside village is surrounded by rugged mountains and boasts one of the safest swimming beaches in Cape Town. Fish Hoek is a glorious bay with a beautiful white sandy beach, with colourful Victorian bathing boxes that add a festive flavour. The beach is a favourite with wind surfers, lifesavers and hobie cat sailers. Visitors will mingle with the locals who swim and walk their dogs on the accessible beach or stroll along the catwalk which heads southwards to Sunny Cove. Fish Hoek Galley, situated right on the beach offers a restaurant and take-aways and is a prime whale watching site to view the Southern Right Whales when they are in the bay to calf between July and November.

Fish Hoek is home to an early stone age historic site where the remains of the 12 000 year old Fish Hoek man was found. More history of the area can be found at the Fish Hoek Valley museum.

Geography
: Along the False Bay coast road, about 10km north of Simon's Town, lies the placid town of Fish Hoek. The long stretch of white sand on Fish Hoek Beach is one of the safest bathing places in the Cape Peninsula, if not in the whole country.

History: Fish Hoek was a farm granted in 1818 to Andries Bruins by Lord Charles Somerset. Bruins called it Vischhoek, meaning "Fish Glen" in Dutch. As transport drivers on their way to Simon's Town Navy Base had to traverse the farm, a condition for granting the farm was that no public wine house would be erected here. The restaurants have, since the 1960's, served alcohol with meals, but the village is still precluded from allowing off-sales.

Science & Nature: From late August it's maternity month for mother whales. Jager's Walk along the coastline is ideal for whale watching and the water alongside the walk is great for snorkelling.

Sport: Bowlers, golfers and tennis players are well catered for at the Clovelly Country Club, while the waves in False Bay offer a wonderful water playground for windsurfers and sailors when the wind picks up.
