WHAT TO DO AROUND GORDONS BAY
______________________________
Gordon's Bay is always popular with rock and surf anglers, and the Gordon's Bay Harbor is completely sheltered to allow safe passage for fishing boats, yachts and power boats in almost all weather conditions. There are great angling possibilities in the area of Gordon's Bay itself, or one can venture further afield to the rich tuna and marlin fishing grounds of Cape Point. A favourite spot for rock anglers to cast their lines is at the Steenbras River mouth. Perhaps the most convenient angling spot of all is the quay wall of one of the small bays where one can settle down in a deck chair for the day with a picnic hamper close at hand. Gordon's Bay and surrounds is a sport paradise for the whole family. The safe waters are ideal for swimming, surfing and windsurfing.
 
Gordon's Bay combines the international feeling of a modern and stylish holiday resort with the charm of a simple seaside village. One can admire the many examples of the very latest styles in architecture or one can explore the older parts of town and discover winding lanes with tucked-away shops and quaint cottages dating from the turn of the century.
 
Gordon's Bay is a convenient point of departure for exploring the Boland. Many places of interest are within easy reach. It is only 45 minutes from Cape Town and 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport. The proximity of Gordon's Bay to the fruit and wine producing regions of Elgin, Grabouw, Stellenbosch, Paarl, Somerset West and Franchoek is convenient and brings the popular wine routs of Cape Town within easy reach.
