The community of Ocean View, between Fish Hoek and Kommetjie was largely a creation of apartheid policy in the 1960-70's. It was created from farmland and fynbos terrain as a community where people designated as "coloured" could be rehoused after many were forcibly removed from the prescribed "white" communities of Fish Hoek, Simon's Town and Noordhoek.

Almost a decade after liberation Ocean View remains a largely mixed-race community of some 25 000 people, heavily dependant on local industry, seasonal fishing and labour. There is much unemployment and poverty in the area and social problems inherited from the recent history predominate. 

Nevertheless Ocean View can be a pleasant place to live with outstanding scenery and open space free from the urban decay and pollution that characterise similar communities on the Cape Flats. The people have retained their culture that reverberates with echoes of the Koi San and early European settler forefathers. The inhabitants are both Christian and Muslim, many having originated in the East Indian islands. This pot pourri of cultural influences has created a vibrant and positive people where humour and resilience predominate. Popular excursions include interaction with the local fisherman and the fishing community from crayfishing (in season) to home cooked meals or walking tours.
