    You can't miss this! Amazing views from the top. Easy to get to via the red line sightseeing bus. Lots of services at the top so you can enjoy a beverage with the views.

    Of course Lion's head is free, other than the energy required to get up. However if you are looking for a hike, Lion's head is by far the easiest hike the gives the best of the Cape Town mountain views. Great to do for sunset and easy to get down under moonlight.

    We stayed in Simonstown and with our rented car we drove to the Cape. We arrived early, before the busses from Cape Town. Glad we did, as we were leaving the parking lot was full and people were everywhere. Scenery is unbelieveable and you can easily spend the day if you add a hike on one of the many trails. Do be careful with food as baboons are extremely aggressive.

    Breath taking sunset. A plus was that you got to see the night light of the city below and the table mountain silhouette. I went twice to see. Just to remind if you want to get a parking, you should got there an hour earlier so that you could pick a park and a spot to enjoy. Loved it

    I went through the museum with a guide who was displaced by the District Six devastating program. He personalized our tour and I would highly recommend that experience.

    Some absolutely stunning pieces, lots of interesting contemporary work. A couple of spaces were not open to the public but still lots to see. The building itself is worth a visit alone if you're into concrete

    Parking takes forever when it's a beautiful day in season, but it's worth the wait and the walk. No access for those who have mobility restrictions, as all beach access is via many stairs. Umbrellas and loungers available for hire on the beaches, take cash with you. Saves carrying extra weight up and down the stairs.

    Lovely little fishing town - well worth making a stop to walk around the shops, the beach and also the harbour area. Lots of good restaurants, we only visited two, but both were really good. We had no problem with safety, parked and walked to a restaurant one time, and had to ask for directions. Never felt unsafe.
    Interesting point - because it is on the other side of the mountain from Cape Town, the weather may be completely different! We woke up on a cloudy, overcast day in Llandudno, drove to Hout Bay and it was blue skies and sunny!

    Beautiful beach but very windy.

    Great place to take your dogs for a run. So much open space for them to go wild.

    Popped up here to get some photographs and while I'm glad I did I would advise caution of your stuff which we were also alerted to by out uber driver. Perhaps worth doing as part of a tour as would have liked to know more of the history.

    A great place to visit on a weekend.
    Great environment for instant friendships and various cuisines.
    The market has very many stalls selling jewellery, artisan leather and clothing , books, food, flowers and endless drinks.
    Bringing everything together is a resident DJ.

    A place that welcomes different ethnicities and style.

    This was an interesting and humbling tour. The bus trip around the island is interesting and our tour guide gave us lots of interesting facts about the island and its history. Look out for all the wildlife, in particular all the turtles, we even found a penguin. The tour of the prison with an ex inmate gives a real insight into what it was like. Our tour guide was willing to answer any questions and was very open about his experience as an inmate. Definitely add this to your Cape Town itinerary.
