FISH HOEK

One of the many popular seaside resorts along the peninsula with a fine safe bathing beach. A stipulation laid down in 1818 by Lord Charles Somerset (who also declared free fishing rights for all) in the original grant of the land that no public house be kept on the farm has been strictly adhered to. The sale of liquor is prohibited in Fish Hoek. The only teetotal town in the country.

A lovely spot for bathing. Cape Peninsula, South Africa.

Peer's Cave. A rock shelter named after the man who discovered the so-called Fishhoek Man, estimated to be about 15 000 years old. Especially frequented by catamaran sailors.

  1. Piękne miejsce. Ale ten zakaz sprzedaży alkoholu dla niektórych może stanowić problem :)

    1. To jest miejscowość typowo turystyczna, więc chyba Polaków tu nie ma:)
