Garden Route DestinationsBallots Bay, Garden Route

Ballots Bay is a small coastal neighbourhood nestled in the verdant abundance of the Garden Route in the Western Cape. This area forms part of the magnificent shores of the Southern Cape of South Africa, and benefits from being sheltered from winds coming from almost every direction. The beach of the same name is secluded amongst the rocks, making it particularly enchanting (not to mention especially protected from the weather condition).

Ballots Bay is also set against the backdrop of rolling jade-coloured hills. This makes the entire area and its beaches ideal for those who love the natural splendour of South Africa.

Ballots Bay was previously known as Christina Bay, but was renamed after Ds Ballot, who was committed to serving the community of George for decades. It was his dream to develop a self-sustaining fishing village here, and to develop it into a harbour for George. Today, it remains quiet and untouched; the haven of a few dedicated fishermen and angling hobbyists. Its tranquillity transcends every aspect of it, and visitors will soon be lulled into a peaceful respite from the city life.

Ballots Bay is home to more than 130 recorded bird species, which are a delight to spot in their natural habitat. In addition, visitors can enjoy the many colours, fragrances and varieties of fynbos, which is endemic to South Africa. The waters of the Indian Ocean also yield some fabulous sightings, including scores of dolphins. Every year, between July and December, pods of whales make their way past the shore too.

George and Knysna are both established towns close to Ballots Bay. There are malls, restaurants, medical facilities and tourist attractions aplenty for those who long to experience the vibe of the Garden Route.
