One of the best sunset spots in Cape Town

A must do while you are in Cape Town. One of the most beautiful sunset spots in this beautiful city.

Wonderful place right next to the sea
Sep 2019
This quiet part of the coast is a great place to watch and listen to the sea. We were staying at accommodation close by and just walked down. It took 5 minutes. There are probably a few access points to different parts of the beach - we walked down a lane between the private houses and where we were the beach was largely rocky. It was beautiful in the spring sun.

There did not seem to be any amenities (aside from a few cafés on the main road) but it was wonderful just to be there in the late afternoon.

Hidden gem
Nov 2019
I would definitely call this little beach a hidden gem. It's very small but cosy and never seemed to be busy. When we went we only saw locals. The absolute selling point of this beach is the sunset: beautiful view of the ocean and the rocks on one side, Lion's head on the other side and the 12 Apostles on the other other side. Breathtaking!

The downside is that it's mostly broken sea-shells so it can be a bit uncomfortable to lounge or walk to the water, but people chilled on the rocks or the grassy bit past the boats. I can also imagine it might be difficult to find parking space. We drove into and parked near the cul-de-sac after the sign that said "Bakoven".

Great Sunset Beach
Sep 2019
We stayed across the street from this beach and went twice. First or the sunset 🌅 it’s a small sandy area, but everyone just sits on the rocks and chills. Also, we went in September and it wasn’t crowded at all. On our last day we got coffee a block away at Bootleggers and just watched the waves .... no one was there and it’s super peaceful.

Beautiful spot
Jul 2019
A little further out from the main Camps Bay beach. Named after the Bakoven rock that sits a little out to sea (It looks like a pizza oven). A gorgeous spot to perch on a rock and watch the sun go down.

A nice little beach
Apr 2019 • Family
Catch it when it’s not busy and this is a very nice little spot. The beach itself is small and tricky underfoot because of the shells. The route isn’t easy with a pushchair - in fact I wouldn’t bother. However it’s a great spot to see the sun go down...

Awesome little beach
Mar 2019 • Couples
Bakoven has two little beaches which are very protected by the wind. It is safe to swim in the sea even though the water is freezing.

Great Beach next to the huge rocks
Jan 2019 • Solo
Went there 15 years ago and came back this time to explore more. Little parking and great climbing through the huge rocks. Fantastic photo spots all day.
