This is a great beach to take your children. Waves are small. The beach is protected. The train going past is quaint. Just watch out for windy days and keep an eye on the shark warning.

Fish Hoek is a gem of a place but to find a parking place is difficult! So, if you're going to meander along the beach or the main road, where there are loads of lovely shops, go EARLY.

I love to visit Fish Hoek when down in the Cape. Can easily be done as part of a circular drive or on the Red Bus tours. You can get good fresh fish and chips. The beach is beautiful with soft white sand. The water...More

This is a nice beach for a family day out. Beach is relatively clean and the water is chilly, but still pleasant in hot weather.
