False Bay

False Bay

Ranging from Cape Point to Cape Hangklip near Cape Town, South Africa, False Bay is an area of dense kelp forests. False Bay once drew visitors from all over the world for great white shark sightings, but fewer and fewer sharks have been recorded in these waters. Fishing pressure in unprotected parts of False Bay is significant and pollution is also an issue in the area. Luckily, Part of the False Bay Hope Spot is reserved as a marine protected area and no-take zone, creating a sanctuary for large reef fish, abalone and small sharks.
