Gordon's Bay Accommodation Information

Taste the Mediterranean in Gordon's Bay, with its old-style charm, narrow streets and bustling waterfront. Set against the steep mountains of the Helderberg, the sheltered waters of this picturesque cove welcome sailors, surfers, fishermen, water-skiers and windsurfers from around the world. Or, for the more sedate, follow the road up the Helderberg to the Steenbras Dam for magnificent views of Table Mountain and even - on a clear day - as far as Cape Point.

Walk the 7km Danie Miller Trail or challenge yourself on the moderately difficult Streenbras River Gorge Hiking Trail (permits required). Enjoy hiking trails and canoeing at the isolated and remarkably unspoiled Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, whose core area covers 18 000 ha of fynbos plantations (permits required).

Gordon's Bay is known for its excellent land-based whale watching between June and November when hundreds of Southern Right whales visit South Africa's sheltered, shallow bays. For a romantic end to the day, take an evening stroll along the harbour wall or a sunset cruise from the old harbour next to the Naval College and/or the new Harbour Island waterfront development. With a wide selection of accommodation and restaurants and all the attractions of the surrounding Helderberg and Winelands within easy reach, Gordon's Bay is the perfect holiday destination.
