While the Cape of Good Hope itself is fairly overrated, swimming with penguins at Boulders Beach (make sure you go to the entrance on the far right), surfing in Muizenberg, and eating fish and chips in Kalk Bay are not. The Kalk Bay Harbour down the southern peninsula is where the fisherman return with each day’s catch, so you’re pretty much as close to the source as you can get. The classic fish and chips shop is Kalky’s, but we prefer Lucky Fish, a local fast-food chain with a location directly across the road. The best call is to get a parcel of fried hake from each one and decide for yourself.
