FISH HOEK / VISHOEK
Fish Hoek (Afrikaans: Vishoek, meaning either Fish Corner or Fish Glen) is a coastal town at the eastern end of the Fish Hoek Valley on the False Bay side of the Cape Peninsula in Cape Town, South Africa. Previously a separate municipality, Fish Hoek is now part of the City of Cape Town. As a coastal suburb of Cape Town, Fish Hoek is popular as a residence for commuters, retired people and holidaymakers alike. The traditional industries of 'trek' fishing and angling coexist with the leisure pursuits of surfing, sailing and sunbathing.
Fish Hoek Beach is one of the best family beaches in South Africa. Recently installed shark nets make for safe and pleasant swimming. Fish Hoek until recently was one of the last "dry towns" which did not serve alcohol in restaurants.
