Dive into the exceptional beauty and relaxed vibe of the Western Cape’s best-kept secret - Gordon’s Bay. As the smallest of the three towns that make up the famous Helderberg region, Gordon’s Bay is considered by many to be a slice of coastal heaven. At only a 45-minute drive from Cape Town, this seaside gem provides one of the most beautiful environments to kick back and take a load off whether you’re interested in a romantic retreat, a getaway with friends or a family vacation.
Bikini Beach - one of the few Blue Flag (an international rating of the highest quality) beaches in Cape Town - is the perfect place to start your Gordon’s Bay adventure, and if you’re a booklover, Bikini Beach Books is the go-to destination for quality second-hand books. Alternatively, Main Beach is known for gentler water, ideal for families with little ones. If something a little more adventurous is more your style, the Cape Canopy Tour will get your heart racing, while the Crystal Pools hiking trail is a must for avid hikers. This 45-minute to an hour hike at the Steenbras Nature Reserve will ultimately take you to a series of majestic natural pools and a waterfall where you are welcome to take a dip and cool down - totally worth the uphill climb!
Although Gordon’s Bay is synonymous with stunning beaches and an abundance of natural beauty, this picturesque town has more to offer than suntanning and watersports. A short 10-minute drive takes you to the famous Helderberg Wine Route, where you can spend the day relaxing and sampling delicious wines - both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Before heading home, don't forget to plan a trip to the Stony Point Nature Reserve to see the African Penguin Colony. The opportunity to see these playful creatures up close thanks to the wooden boardwalk is a sight you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
