When to visit Bantry Bay?

The mercury rarely falls below 10°C in these months.

Close By Attractions

Five minutes from your Atlantic Seaboard accommodation is the popular V&A Waterfront, a working harbour and a shopping emporium. If shopping in a mall is not your idea of a Cape Town holiday, why not take a trip up the iconic flat topped Table Mountain or party the night away in one of the many Sea Point, Green Point, or City Bowl nightclubs? For safe and cheap transport, your Bantry Bay accommodation will be able to organise transfers to and from your chosen nightspot.
