Gordon’s Bay is situated in the Helderberg region of the Western Cape province of South Africa only 50km away from Cape Town. Gordon’s Bay consists of the old village, situated around the old harbour and Bikini Beach, the mountainside on the lower slopes of the Hottentots-Holland mountains overlooking False Bay, and the low-lying suburbs close to the main beach, making up the most recent expansion of the town.
