AHOY! AHOY!
On the magnificent coastal drive from Cape Town to Cape Point is Hout Bay and Mariner's Wharf, the first
harbourfront emporium in Africa and the Southern Hemisphere (3402'49.70 S 1820'53.60 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
