Gordon’s Bay is a pretty coastal haven just 57 km away from Cape Town. Oozing charm and the good looks of mountainside, ocean, beach and harbour, Gordon’s Bay is a great getaway spot in Western Cape. There’s beauty galore, plenty of sightseeing and outdoor activity, and shoulder rubbing with stunning neighbouring places. We recommend two superb getaways here: one a chic, owner-run guest sanctuary, and the other an alluring boutique hotel. We also recommend a hideaway in nearby Pringle Bay.


Krystal Beach stands beside the waterfront at Harbour Island in Gordon’s Bay. The hotel rooms are sophisticated and comfy, and they offer either mountain or sea views. The Captain’s Table at Krystal Beach is a unique seafood restaurant located in a replica of an old sailing ship. The popular Bikini Beach, the Crystal Springs hike and local wine estates can all be reached from the hotel.


Chocolate Box is a super-chic, 5-star luxury guesthouse in Gordon’s Bay. Views from the pool deck are absolutely sublime – the sunsets are a truly magnificent. There are just a handful of suites and these are crisp and contemporary, providing generous comforts and vibrant decor. The owners are hands-on, ensuring a top-quality experience of hospitality.



On the edge of nearby Pringle Bay, Kapensis Guesthouse is set on a fynbos farm, the coastline and unique fynbos of the area granting magnificent views. The area has much to offer visitors, including hiking and biking, whale and penguin viewing, wine routes and beaches.
