Gordons Bay is a seaside village (30km from Cape Town) on the False Bay coast and has the Hottentots Holland mountains as a backdrop.
The town is well known for its safe beaches. Bikini Beach, next to the harbour, has been awarded Blue Flag status.
This means that it is safe and clean and adheres to international safety and other tourist standards.
This is also the starting point of the scenic coastal road to Rooiels and Kleinmond, Clarence Drive (R44).
Against the mountains you will see the letter GB with an anchor between them. This used to be the initials of the naval training college situated against the mountain - General Botha Training College.
The Elgin Wine Route is a new route and lies just outside the Cape Peninsula in the Elgin Valley. The town Grabouw is the centre of this area.
On the route you can expect wine tastings, hiking and mountain bike trails, cellar tours, restaurants, function venues, accommodation and a brandy distillery.
A garden of 10 ha while the remainder is managed as a natural reserve, included the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve.
Kogelberg Nature Reserve is often considered the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom and presents perhaps the finest example of mountain fynbos in the Western Cape.
Founded in 1971 The Stellenbosch Wine Route is the oldest wine route and today represents more than 200 estates.
