About UsHoutBay.info is run from the beautiful fishing village of Hout Bay near Cape Town, South Africa. The uniqueness of Hout Bay has always made its residents feel somewhat separated from the rest of South Africa and almost like an independent republic. It is not unusual to bump into people referring to our lovely valley and village as The Republic of Hout Bay and even flashing around a passport to prove their citizenship!
HoutBay.info was established to help both visitors and locals alike find the services and things they need around Hout Bay and to help the Hout Bay community to connect online with each other as we do in the coffee shops and streets. We offer this service for free and value all suggestions that you may have on how we can improve HoutBay.info.
We encourage people to contribute to our website and will be accepting and publishing articles on Hout Bay written by locals and visitors from anywhere in the world.
Please also feel free to submit your own Hout Bay website or Hout Bay business to our directory, simply click on the submit link at the top of the page to get started.
We hope that you fall as in love with Hout Bay as we are and if you are only visiting our valley we hope you will continue returning and perhaps even become a resident of the Republic of Hout Bay yourself.
