Three beaches, three ways to stay cool - Bakoven Beach - Part 1

January 23, 2018

Bakoven beach is a fantastic little shelly beach to take kids to, the ample rock pools and kelp forests are great fun to explore and the water is a lovely deep blue. You have greater privacy on this small beach, but a lack of amenities, so make sure that you bring everything you need. 

If you need a good caffeine fix or (as we discovered) and amazing veg burger, Bootleggers is around the corner (have the Quinoa Veg Burger with a beetroot, quinoa and flax seed patty topped with avocado, coriander and served with sweet potato chips). 

An excellent beach that feels out of the way, while still being quite central.

Location: The far left side of Camps Bay (when facing the ocean), follow Victoria Drive in the direction of Hout Bay, turn off into Beta Road.
