City Gordon's Bay

Gordon's Bay is a harbour town with a beautiful beach in the False Bay, in the area adjacent to the Helderberg Winelands in the Western Cape Province.

A 45 minute drive from Cape Town it is a wonderful place here, beach, ocean, wine country and to see the "Mother City", or arrive via the coastal road in the beautiful Kogelberg Nature Reserve to arrive in Walker Bay where Hermanus is situated.

If you are you here in the South African spring, then this route will really be a day trip on your program, because the chances are great for whale watching here, but also from the whale watching site at Suikerbossie it is possible to see these giants jump.

The "Blue Flag" beach, pubs and restaurants and the fabulous sunset from here is really overwhelming, which makes Gordon's Bay to the place to be! In Gordon's Bay it is all about the life along the waterfront, cafes, walking and also picnic on the coast is a wonderful pastime. Enter the water from the port for a pleasure trip or to get something on the hook.

Bikini Beach is the place to go play volleyball, sunbathe and surfing and just around the corner you'll find Kogel Bay or Cool Bay where the white beaches and amazing waves attract many surfers.

The Helderberg Wine Route makes it difficult to remain in one place because it will take you to 25 different winemakers and cellars where there are fine wines, fun and specialty restaurants, so the tour will make a tasty and sensational day...

Energetic people can put on their walking shoes the next day and venture into the nature of the Steenbras Dam. There you can go walk the Steenbras River Gorge Hiking trail, enjoying the beautiful flora and fauna and of course the stunning views over False Bay. There is a particularly nice view you can see from the lookout at the Sir Lowry's Pass.

Very near is Strand bordering Somerset West with its huge shopping mall and plenty of wine estates. And you are in Stellenbosch within 40 minutes. A region known for wine, golf, good restaurants, promenades and beautiful nature! You can see that staying in Gordon's Bay is so much more than a typical port town!
