Things to do in Bantry Bay

If basking in the sheer beauty of your surroundings is not enough for you, Bantry Bay is close enough to all the Cape Town action where you can set your itchy feet in motion and enjoy the nearby attractions.


Bantry Bay is enclosed by massive boulders, so swimming is limited to your luxury vacation rental’s private pool. However, you can set out to the beach on foot, since Bantry Bay’s direct neighbouring suburb, Clifton, offers no less than four beautiful and sheltered white sandy beaches.


Bantry Bay offers only a few handpicked restaurants and bars, but Camps Bay just on the other side of Clifton, has restaurants, bars and nightlife to last you a lifetime.


Less than 4km to Camps Bay and only 6km from the V&A Waterfront, Bantry Bay is perfectly positioned for holidaymakers to make the most of shopping and entertainment offered by these hubs.


The Atlantic Seaboard is home to numerous spas varying in sizes from the most personalised small establishments to large, world-class spas. Take your pick, no trouble will be spared to ensure your wellness while on vacation in Bantry Bay.

Hiking trails

Access the Lion’s Head hiking trail directly from the edge of Bantry Bay. Although the walk can be steep at times, it is not very difficult.

It will take you around two hours to get to the top and back again. There are chains and ladders along the way to help you scramble up particularly steep rocky faces, but don’t let this put you off, there is an alternative route that goes around the chain-section.

Full Moon hikes up Lions Head are very popular and offer mind blowing views over Cape Town, but remember, head torches and warm clothing are compulsory because it can be chilly even on summer nights.


When you’re on holiday in Bantry Bay, you can watch paragliders from your doorstep ride the wind from the top of Lion’s Head. If you are brave enough, participate in this exhilarating activity. Tandem paragliding is on offer for holidaymakers who like to push the envelope.

Bantry Bay weather

Bantry Bay offers perfect vacation weather. It is renowned as one of the few wind-free areas in Cape Town because of its unique position propped between Lion’s Head and the mighty ocean.

The ‘Cape Doctor’, as the infamous South Easter wind in Cape Town is known amongst locals, doesn’t let off easily during the summer months but Bantry Bay is secluded and protected. It is said that Bantry Bay records around 290 wind-free days per year.
