Bakoven, Atlantic Seaboard
Once you've booked your Bakoven accommodation explore our pages for info on attractions and what to do in Bakoven.
Bakoven’s beach is often overlooked in favour of the more trendy Camps Bay just minutes away, but make no mistake, Bakoven is one of the most sought after suburbs in Cape Town and the views from here are simply spectacular.
Bakoven has been called Camps Bay’s baby sister, but its exclusivity and charming village-like feel that the neighbourhood has managed to maintain has been deliberately kept this way to avoid the constant hustle and bustle of its popular counterpart. On the other hand, if it’s a hub of energy and activity you’re after, then Bakoven’s location, just as you leave Camps Bay en route to Llandudno, is perfect. You’re close to the action but away from the noise when you so choose.
The beach at Bakoven is small and zealously protected by locals, but its natural beauty and the combination of big boulders and white sands make it a superb haven for sundowners, and its little coves protect it from the wind.
You’re only 10 minutes’ away from the V&A Waterfront and the city centre here, and yet if you’re staying on the beach side of Victoria Road with its attractive seaside bungalows, you could be mistaken for assuming that you were miles from a city.
