'The most beautiful outdoor mall in Africa'

Welcome to Mainstream Shopping Village and Mall.

We are situated in the beautiful seaside valley of Hout Bay, and our mix of 21st Century malls and offices alongside rustic fisherman’s cottages make us rather unique.

With the dimension of historical Fisherman’s World village nestling alongside, Mainstream Mall is a scenic half-hour drive from Cape Town. From the other direction, we are two minutes away from the start of the world-famous Chapman’s Peak Drive, the busiest and most well-known tourist route in the Cape.

These developments combine to create Hout Bay’s biggest and classiest shopping experience, and have over the years eventuated into a popular venue for locals and urban sophisticates wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of crowded city corridors.

Retail outlets include a good mix of trendy and chic, health and beauty outlets, homeware, accessories, clothing and shoe shops, restaurants, services and banking.

Important national names include Woolworths, Clicks, CNA, Picardi, Vodacom, Pick ‘n Pay and Flight Centre.

With its lifestyle shops, tranquil settings and shady courtyards, Mainstream Mall and Fisherman’s World complement each other well in a unique countryside destination. There is also ample free parking and 24 hour security. And close by are the golden sands of Hout Bay’s main beach, an ideal spot for picnics with delicious takeaway goodies from the food outlets of Mainstream Mall. Or simply enjoy one of the conveniently-located restaurants, cafes or coffee shops.

Comprising almost 500 metres of Main Road property and six hectares of prime CBD, it is at Mainstream Mall and Fisherman’s World that Hout Bay’s historical roots and modern retail complex merge into an exciting precinct.
