Le Bay Guest House is perfect for low-key holiday by the beach. It’s suitable for couples, families and friends looking to get away from city living with the smell of the sea breeze in the air and the ocean right on their doorstep.
The guest house is a quaint lodge situated in the heart of Gordon’s Bay, a tranquil harbour town to the east of False Bay.
Its ideal location makes Le Bay Guest House an obvious base to explore the region. The Mother City, the Cape Winelands and Hermanus are all an easy hour's drive or so away.
A string of restaurants, pubs, and various small-town oddities are in proximity to the establishment. Enjoy fresh calamari and super casual dining at Trawlers, or opt for takeaways and eat at home or on the beach. Otherwise, make a reservation at De Brassiere and experience fine dining complemented by views of the sea. Try the best waffles in town - light, fluffy and melt-in-your-mouth, at the Belgian Waffle House. Sweet and savoury options are available on the menu.
Bikini Books is a must-visit for those in search of a holiday read. The store sells a wide variety of previously loved books, ranging from children’s stories to crime novels. Various knick-knackeries like beach towels, hats, glasses and more can be bought from vendors at the beachfront. Be sure to bring cash with you if you want to buy ice cream!
Spend the day on Bikini Beach, a popular swimming bay. With temperate and calm water, the blue flag beach is perfect for families.
For a novel shopping experience, drive to Strand’s Friedman and Cohen. The unique store sells all sorts of wares that you won’t find in your typical convenience store.
Shopaholics can enjoy extensive retail therapy at Somerset Mall in the neighbouring town of Somerset West.
Enjoy wine tasting by driving to Stellenbosch and Paarl for the day. Stellenbosch is home to some of South Africa’s most esteemed wine estates such as Spier, Lanzerac and Blaauwklippen where you can taste award-winning wines. Paarl has KWV and the Spice Route. Take a slight detour to Fairview and taste and purchase some cheese.
