On old maps dating back to the early days of the Cape Colony, our little bay is variously referred to as “Visser’s Baay” ( 1673), “ de Vishoek” (1676) and “ Combuys” – evidence that it was known as a place where fresh water, fish and game could be found. Subsequently it was also called Vishoek, Vissershoek and Fish Hoek. We don’t know exactly when the name Gordon’s Bay was finally settled upon, but we do know that the name Gordon commemorates Robert Jacob Gordon, the Commandant of the Dutch troops at the Capefrom 1777 – 1795. He was a remarkable man with an enquiring mind and wide interests.

Although of Scottish descent, Robert Gordon’s allegiance was with the Netherlands. He joined the Dutch Light Dragoons as a cadet in 1753 and enrolled at the University of Harderwijkin 1759, where he studied in the humanities and proved to be of exceptional intelligence and diverse interests. He joined the Dutch East India Company, rising quickly to the rank of Colonel and commanding the Cape garrison.
He went on more expeditions than any other 18th century explorer of southernAfrica and kept journals and sketch books to record his travels. He was responsible for naming the Orange River, introducing Merino sheep to theCapeColony and for discovering the remains of Bartholomeu Dias’s cross at Kwaaihoek in 1786. Fluent in French, Dutch and English, Robert Gordon also spoke Hottentot and Xhosa!
Robert Gordon’s first trip into the interior( 1773 – 1774) was on foot, to explore the mountains between Cape Town and False Bay and it was then that he visited our little bay and left his name with us – a worthy namesake indeed!

Area Information:
Gordons Bay is all about its waterfront, where the bay lies against the sheer mountains of the Helderberg, providing shelter to a picturesque cove that offers a veritable feast of water-based activities and a promenade lined with fish shops, coffee bars and restaurants.

Gordons Bay bustles during peak season. Bikini Beach is popular with the younger crowd who come here to play beach volleyball, sunbathe and surf, whilst the main beach is more popular with families and the water is gentler. You don’t have to be on the beach to appreciate this part of the world. The Helderberg Wine Route includes some 25 different wineries that range from a 300-year old historical manor to art boutique wineries and include the cellars of Vergelegen, Scholtzenhof, Morgenster and Post House.

If you’re here during the whale watching season then a drive along Clarence Drive, the scenic coastal road between Gordon’s Bay and Betty’s Bay, offers some of the best designated whale watching spots on the coast and the Steenbras dam has magnificent views over Gordon’s Bay and is a great spot for picnics.

Evenings should include a stroll along the harbour wall or a sunset cruise from the old harbour, which also has a string of excellent seafood restaurants. And Gordon’s Bay is only 40 minutes from Cape Town, so experiencing an alternative night life and still making it home is indeed an option.
