Bikini Beach Gordon's Bay, Cape Town, South Africa

Bikini Beach on a winters day

Bikini Beach is an exclusive little beach in Gordon's Bay, I still wonder how Bikini Beach got it's name but when one goes to this beach then you are reminded that this little beach lives up to its name. Apparently legend has it the beach was named after the numerous bikini babes from the nearby Stellenbosch University who frequent this intimate little beach.

Bikini Beach is one of only Blue Flag Beaches in Cape Town, this indicates a high level of water quality, facilities, cleanliness and safety having active lifeguards on duty. There are good changing room facilities and showers to wash the sand off your body.

Bikini Beach is an good swimming beach but it gets deep suddenly and is not a friendly beach for young children or weak swimmers at times there is also quite a strong surf.

It's ideal location surrounded by the Hottentot's Holland mountain range on one side and the harbour breakwater on the other, locals know that when the South Easter is howling Bikini Beach is normally unaffected.

Next door to Bikini Beach, is the Old Harbour of Gordon's Bay there is a shop that sell ice creams, cool drinks and fish 'n chips. At the Harbour, there is also quite a lot to see with fishing boats coming in, General Botha Naval Base, Gordon's Bay Yacht Club and NSRI.
