Hout Bay is a small town nestled in a valley that runs down to the ocean, an attractive place to base yourself for exploring the Peninsula, right by Chapman’s Peak Drive, and with a range of services to offer. Tarragona Lodge is a modern, contemporary guest house in Hout Bay, decorated in soft, earthen tones and with a wonderful homely feel. The rooms are remarkably large, and all have balconies to make the best of the views over the surrounding hills and towards the ocean. There is a cocktail bar and the lodge will also gladly put together picnic hampers for you to take as you set off to see some of the highlights of the Cape Peninsula. All this comes at a very attractive price: Tarragona offers superb value-for-money.
