Gordon's Bay gives real meaning to the term 'picturesque coastal village'. Lying at the sundrenched foot of the Hottentots Holland range, which drops straight into an azure sea, its harbour is a constant buzz of holiday activity. Home to the South African Naval College, Gordon's Bay is forty-five minutes' drive to Cape Town and 30 minutes to Cape Town International Airport. Retaining a village-like intimacy despite its popularity, it offers an inexpensive, Mediterranean-style alternative to the turbocharged city across the bay.
Backdropped by magnificent mountains and blessed with diverse flora and fauna, kilometres of white, sandy beaches and its own wine route, Helderberg is a tourists' paradise.
North, across False Bay's wide, tranquil expanse, Table Mountain's distinctive silhouette looks out over the Cape Flats. Rich in history, Helderberg is the last resting place of Sheikh Yusuf, buried at the Macassar Kramat (Moslem Shrine) in 1699.
The Helderberg Wine Route ('from the sea to the vine') boasts some of the oldest estates and manor houses and was awarded the first two five-star ratings ever to South African wines by Wine magazine.
Accommodation is plentiful and varied and the Helderberg boasts some of the finest restaurants, steakhouses, pizzerias, take-aways and speciality eateries in the Western Cape.
Every conceivable sport is on offer. Helderberg has three golf courses and hosts every type of watersport.
The Helderberg Mountains offer walking, hiking, rock climbing and trailing and, with our wonderful, near-perfect year-round climate, your visit can only be a never-to-be-forgotten experience.

A range of jagged mountains thrusting into the splendid desolation of the southern Atlantic, the Cape Peninsula is one of the world's most beautiful places.
Cape Town, the Southern Peninsula, Blaauwberg, Helderberg,Gordons Bay, Tygerberg and Oostenberg form the Cape Metropole, a large, ultramodern city covering the sandy plains running from the mountain's feet to the Hottentots Holland range in the purple distance. Pristine beaches, sheltered bays and secluded coves encircle the majestic might of Table Mountain, a World Heritage Site and home to some 8 500 species of flower. Between the mountain's looming crags and Table Bay's deep blue sweep lies South Africa's Mother City and the cosmopolitan hub of the Western Cape Province - Cape Town. The best way to revel in the Peninsula's unrivalled beauty is to travel to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve along one of two coastal drives, each dramatically different. To the west, the famous Chapman's Peak route via Hout Bay and the endless, white expanse of Noordhoek's Long Beach. The False Bay road hugs the mountainside, snaking past Fish Hoek, a popular family beach, Kalk Bay, a fishing village imbued with character and colour, and Muizenberg, renowned for its safe swimming, excellent surfing and colourful bathing boxes. Life in the City Bowl centres around the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, a pulsating waterfront Mecca, historical site and working harbour offering everything from upmarket shopping malls, arts and crafts markets, theatres and live music to entertainment showpieces including the Telkom Exploratorium and the awe-inspiring Two Oceans Aquarium. Museums and art galleries abound and South Africa's oldest building, the Castle of Good Hope, is in the city centre. The cobbled streets of Bo-Kaap with their delightful old buildings and the first mosque in South Africa stand in cultural contrast to the buildings of the oldest homestead and wine farm in the Cape, Groot Constantia. On the Constantia wine route, Groot Constantia is tied by history and the vine to estates in the Helderberg and Durbanville. For the energetic and those wanting to explore the abundance of the Cape Floral Kingdom's fauna and flora, there are many walks and climbs: Up Table Mountain or Lion's Head, through the Silvermine or Tygerberg Nature Reserves, Newlands Forest, the Cape of Good Hope or Helderberg Nature Reserves, or one of several other inner-city wildlife areas. (24-hour petrol and banking facilities are available throughout the Cape Metropole and its surrounds.)
