Like a sliver of Monaco on the African coast, accommodation in Bantry Bay is characterised by super-stylish apartments and grand homes that open out onto wide balconies, sunny pool decks and those coveted ocean views.
While sea views dominate, this rugged section of coastline does not have its own beach. That, however, is not a problem: the pearl-white sands of Cape Town’s famous city beaches lie just around the corner. Clifton’s four sheltered coves are barely out of third gear from Bantry Bay; drive five minutes further and you’re cruising the palm-lined Camps Bay boulevard. Carry on along this scenic coastal road and you'll soon arrive at beautiful Llandudno beach, fantastic-for-families Hout Bay and the dramatic vistas of Cape Point.
After a day spent exploring the Cape Peninsula, return to the luxury of your exclusive Bantry Bay villa. The ideal refuge for visitors who seek peace and quiet at the end of the day, this tranquil enclave seems far removed from the late-night bustle of the Cape Town city centre or Camps Bay. Yet, settled on your balcony and listening to the ocean, you’re just a 10-minute drive from the heart of the city or ever-popular V&A Waterfront.
What’s more, our Bantry Bay villas enjoy elevated positions on a western-facing slope, making them ideally placed to catch a classic sunset over the ocean. And, by a quirk of topography, this sheltered neighbourhood is virtually wind-free during the summer months when the infamous south-easter wind blows across much of Cape Town, making it the perfect spot for sipping sundowners and enjoying alfresco suppers next to the soothing rhythm of the surf.
Visit next-door Camps Bay for a broad stretch of sand and lively beachside cafés; for something more secluded, try the small cove of Beta Beach in Bakoven – a natural playground for children complete with calm sea, giant granite boulders and bucket-loads of shells.
