About the neighbourhood
Gordon's Bay is a picturesque coastal village, often called the 'jewel of the Western Cape' and still one of the best kept secrets in the area. With safe sandy white beaches, including the Blue Flag Bikini Beach, two harbours on False Bay, Gordon's Bay is also a boating and fisherman's paradise. This quaint seaside village has bars and restaurants to suit all tastes, a 9 hole golfcourse right in the village, bowls, horse riding as well as a number of hiking trails and walking routes. It is the start of the famous 'Whale Coast Route' which follows the spectacular Faure Marine Drive round the coast to Hermanus, and in July to December the Southern Right whales can be seen in False Bay, along with dolphins and sharks - shark cage diving is available nearby, and there are a colony of peng...
How to get there
From Cape Town International airport, follow the N2 motorway towards Somerset West.. Continue along the N2 past the Somerset Mall shopping centre on the right, Somerset West on the left and through Strand (approx. 20 kms). Just before Sir Lowry's Pass, turn right at the traffic light, signposted to Gordon's Bay and Klienmont (R44). Continue along this road (Sir Lowry's Pass road) until just BEFORE the T-Junction at the end, and turn left into Boundary Road (also called Grens Weg). If you are on the road that goes up a hill and turns right with the sea on the right, you have missed the turning to Boundary Road, and are heading to Rooi Els. You will need to turn round at the first opportunity and go back and turn into Boundary Road. Drive up the hill - Boundary Road bears to t...
