Cape Whale Coast from Gordon’s Bay

 Cape Whale Coast from Gordon’s Bay   

Close to the very tip of Africa, just outside Cape Town, you will find the Cape Whale Coast – a place that can easily be called ‘Heaven on Earth’. This pristine stretch of the South African coastline that runs from the coastal hamlet of Rooiels in the west to Quoin Point in the East is flanked by mesmerizing mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. It is a popular drive that easily rivals Chapman’s Peak in Cape Town as one of the most scenic in the country – views over False Bay are incredible on clear days.
