magnificent coastal drive from Cape Town to Cape Point
is Hout Bay and Mariner's Wharf, the first
emporium in Africa and the Southern Hemisphere (34°02'49.70 S 18°20'53.60 E).
Conceptualised and built by Hout Bay's own Stanley
Dorman, it continues to grow under his,
wife Pam's, and sons Garth and Anton's watchful eyes.
Its restaurants, shops and markets exude a maritime
ambience as is nowhere else to be found.
Mariner's Wharf is a wonderful place, a place where the famous and
locals, jetsetters and tourists rub shoulders with
venerable fishing captains and old salts.
Indeed, well worth a visit! Click here to view information on the "Embracing Hout Bay" book
