Western Cape DestinationsGordons Bay, Cape Helderberg

Gordons Bay is all about its waterfront, where the bay lies against the sheer mountains of the Helderberg, providing shelter to a picturesque cove that offers a veritable feast of water-based activities and a promenade lined with fish shops, coffee bars and restaurants.

Gordons Bay bustles during peak season. Bikini Beach is popular with the younger crowd who come here to play beach volleyball, sunbathe and surf, whilst the main beach is more popular with families and the water is gentler. You donít have to be on the beach to appreciate this part of the world. The Helderberg Wine Route includes some 25 different wineries that range from a 300-year old historical manor to art boutique wineries and include the cellars of Vergelegen, Scholtzenhof, Morgenster and Post House.

If youíre here during the whale watching season then a drive along Clarence Drive, the scenic coastal road between Gordonís Bay and Bettyís Bay, offers some of the best designated whale watching spots on the coast and the Steenbras dam has magnificent views over Gordonís Bay and is a great spot for picnics.

Evenings should include a stroll along the harbour wall or a sunset cruise from the old harbour, which also has a string of excellent seafood restaurants. And Gordonís Bay is only 40 minutes from Cape Town, so experiencing an alternative night life and still making it home is indeed an option.
