Sports

Clovelly Country Club is just a five minute drive away from Ocean’s Echo and hosts an 18 hole/par 72 golf course. Golf enthusiasts will tell you that this probably is the most beautiful course in Cape Town. It has an intimate, country feel and excellent service.

Some of the best cycle routes are located around Ocean’s Echo and form part of the Argus Cycle Tour Race (the biggest timed cycle race in the world). If you cycle towards Simon’s Town, you can ride the loop up Cape Point, into Scarborough, through Kommetjie and then back into Fish Hoek. If you head towards Noordhoek, you can cycle up Chapman’s Peak, into Hout Bay (where you can break for breakfast and coffee) and back over again into Fish Hoek. If you are a cyclist, this is paradise!

For runners, there is the seafront and beaches which are beautiful running routes, with hardly any gruelling hills.

For the water-adventurous, sign up for some lessons in surf-skiing at Dawid Mocke’s Surf-Ski School (The Paddling Centre, Fish Hoek Main Road). Dawid, a world champion paddler, offers coaching for beginners and advanced paddlers.

Also close at hand is deep sea fishing, kayaking (Simon’s Town Waterfront is a favourite location), surfing, kite surfing, squash courts, tennis courts and a fully serviced gym (The Zone).
