Cape Town’s Less-Photographed Hotspot is Also its Best

Fish Hoek Whale of a Time

There’s no denying it – Cape Town is one of the best places for aspiring and professional photographers. Whether you’re a casual Instagrammer or a full-time pro behind the lens, Cape Town’s scenic environment offers more than enough diversity, colours, and ‘wow’ spots to capture an amazing pic. That said, lens-lovers often flock to the more well-treaded areas, but if you’re looking for some truly unique and interesting photography opportunities, it’s hard to beat out Fish Hoek.

Not only does the False Bay area have some stunning beaches and cliff-faces to fill your backdrop with, but there is a wealth of marine life, including seals, penguins, and whales to keep an eye out for, along with white sand, the famous train-line, beautiful old ships, and (arguably) the best sunsets in the peninsula. Not to mention that the spectacular Cape Point Nature Reserve is just a short 40 minute drive away, offering some of the most breathtaking views you’ll find this side of the planet!
