Gordon’s Bay is a harbour town with excellent beaches, which lies against the Helderberg.

Gordon’s Bay, about 45 minutes’ drive away from Cape Town, is named after Robert Jacob Gordon, a Dutch colonel, explorer and acting governor of the Cape.

A visitor’s paradise, the town boasts long Blue Flag status beaches and a good climate.

Along the beachfront lies a stretch of pubs, cafés, shopping malls and restaurants, where visitors can enjoy a variety of meals or just relax and watch the sun set.

Apart from bustling beach life, visitors can also enjoy the nearby Helderberg wine route, with over 25 wineries and cellars.

If you are looking for some quiet time with nature then the Nederburg Nature Reserve is the place to be. The Steenbras River Gorge Hiking Trail is suited to energetic people. From the Steenbras Dam there are views over False Bay.

Fishing charters and pleasure cruises depart from the waterfront and harbour, which is home to the Gordon’s Bay Boat Angling Club, +27 (0)73 546 6686, and Gordon’s Bay Yacht Club, +27 (0)21 856 3263.

Cango Caves

29km from Oudtshoorn, at the head of the picturesque Cango Valley, lies the spectacular underground wonder of the Klein Karoo - the Cango Caves. Situated in a limestone ridge parallel to the well-known Swartberg Mountains, you will find the finest dripstone caverns, with their vast halls and towering formations.

Southern Suburbs

The Southern Suburbs are a tourist’s delight. The area, which stretches from the slopes of the Table Mountain range to the False Bay coast, offers natural attractions and a vibrant nightlife.

St James

Just a little further on from Cape Town’s well-known Muizenberg beach is St James. Home to a cluster of well-known and oft-photographed bathing boxes on the beach, St James is a picturesque area that offers beachgoers respite from the westerly wind.

Llandudno and Sandy Bay

Only 18km from the Cape Town city centre, an arc of fine white sand gives away the secluded location of one of Cape Town’s most beautiful beaches, Llandudno.
