Please Note: Videos can be played back in full-screen mode for your viewing enjoyment. All videos are hosted on YouTube.

An ideal family beach, Fish Hoek’s mile long (1.5km) stretch of sand extends from Clovelly on the northern side to Sunny Cove in the south.

The less developed northern part of the beach is used by fishermen and is popular with walkers. The southern section is developed with children’s play areas and restaurants.

Jager's Walk, Fish Hoek beachJager’s Walk (the "catwalk") hugs the beach, linking Fish Hoek beach to Sunny Cove. This gently undulating path runs across rocks, past rock pools and alongside the railway line. A longer coastal walk leads all the way to Simonstown. This is also a great vantage point to spot Southern Right whales that come close in shore in the winter months to calf (July to October).
