While Gordon?s Bay retains the quaint and traditional atmosphere of the old fishing village it also hosts a fine Yacht Club and there is an abundance of little shops, restaurants and pavement cafes where you can relax in the sun and watch the world go by.
Don?t miss out on a visit to the local seal colony and the chance to meet up with the whales! Boat trips are available from the old harbor. Why not add a touch of extra romance to your stay with a sundowner cruise?
Head out to sea from the old harbor we can arrange deep-sea or Cray fishing trips. Alternatively while away a sunny afternoon fishing from the old harbor.
For those not keen to land their own catch there are excellent local restaurants and many offer first class fresh sea - food.
Hire bicycles or mountain bikes to take in the beautiful scenery and get up close to the lovely flora and fauna. Or just go walking on the mountain trails.

Although I never got to meet my hosts, Jane and Graham, I was very well looked after by the lovely Donaly, their manager. The accommodation was divine, a small piece of heaven with views to die for! My stay at Dolphin's Leap was a very welcome break with some much needed R & R! I hope to return there sometime in the VERY near future!

we spent almost 3 weeks at Whale Views - at first at dolphins leap and after a Garden Roue tour also at
dolphins rest. both apartments do offer beautiful views over false bay. we enjoyed our private pool and the quiet and intimate surrounding as well as our charming and very helpful hosts Jane and Graham.
Both apartments are very well equipped and do offer everything we needed during our stay.
As both apartment were fully booked for two days, we had to stay in another apartment in Strand, which was-compared to Whale views -very dissapointing. we were very happy to come back to Whale Views and continue
our wonderful stay in Gordons Bay.
We can recommend Whale Views very much and will come back this year, definitely!
