Cape Town - Gordon's Bay
Geography and History
Gordon's Bay is in the Western Cape province of South Africa, and together with Somerset West and the Strand, make up the Helderberg Basin. There is a combination of action packed Mountains, warm Blue Ocean and white sandy beaches, making it one of the most sought after holiday destinations in the world.
The slopes of the mountains are covered in vineyards or botanical gardens. Whilst the Helderberg is a world of it's own, it is still only 30 minutes drive from the centre of Cape Town, 20 minutes from the Cape Town International Airport and 15 minutes from the beautiful town of Stellenbosch.
Gordon's Bay consists of the old village, situated around the old harbour and Bikini Beach (one of the few blue flag beaches in South Africa), the mountainside on the lower slopes of the Hottentots-Holland mountains overlooking False Bay, and the low-lying suburbs close to the main beach, making up the most recent expansion of the town.
Gordon's Bay has a variety of accommodation options available from Guest Houses, Bed and Breakfasts to Self-catering units.
For the tourist, Cape Town offers a variety of activities and attractions, such as the Two Oceans Aquarium, Ratanga Junction Theme Park, Canal Walk Shopping Centre, craft markets, the BMW Pavilion, IMAX Theatre and numerous shopping centres.
