Fish Hoek is one of the peninsula's best places for whale watching and also one of the most popular family beaches offering restaurants, easy parking, changing rooms, showers and lifeguards.
Most beach goers utilize this beach for swimming, surfing, kayaking, hobie cat sailing, sunbathing and walking. Sometimes the traditional 'trek' fishing boats can be seen hauling in their catch of yellowtail or harders.
Southern Right whales arrive in early August and stay until the end of November. A great spot to watch them is along Jager’s Walk, a scenic catwalk that starts at the beach restaurant and follows the rocky coastline all the way to Sunny Cove.
Landlubbers can lace up their hiking boots and explore Peers Cave, the place where ‘Fish Hoek Man’ and Stone Age tools were found. Here the views sweep across the valley and both sides of the peninsula. The summit of Elsie’s Peak is another great hiking option through pretty mountain fynbos with spectacular views.
