Verified reviewvery good

Big Bay has progressed in leaps and bounds in the years that we have been holidaying in this area. From the old braai/picnic area, it has become a trendy spot catering for people of all ages. Now we can sit at a choice of restaurants at Eden on the Bay looking out at the fantastic views of Table Mountain and Atlantic Ocean/Robben Island. Plenty of quick takeaway foods too for those who just want to spend their day in the water surfing, kitesurfing, standup paddling etc for which Big Bay has become quite famous. Parents can take their youngsters to Little Bay, a short beach walk from Big Bay, where there are rock pools and a play area. There is plenty of affordable accommodation within easy walking distance of Big Bay. Oh yes, Big Bay is on the MyCiti bus route too!

I LOVED the beaches on this side because the views toward Cape town are so spectacular! Very family orientated and there are plenty of restaurants. On a windy day the spectacle provide by all the kite surfers is really something!
