The Western Cape region
As Sir Francis Drake put it, "Here is the fairest Cape in all the world"! And he should know.
The Western Cape Province, one of nine in S.A., is one of the world's most beautiful regions with its magnificent coast line extending around the southern end of this great continent, its striking mountains and fertile valleys, unique floral kingdoms, wild life and historical interest. Just to put things into perspective, the Province is about 10.5% of the area of S.A., and is roughly the size of England, or Louisiana in the U.S.A. And the population is roughly 6million! The possibilities here are endless.
It is the home of "The Mother City", Cape Town, where it entered into the modern world in 1652, when Jan Van Riebeeck set up shop there on behalf of the Dutch East India Company, as a stop-off point on its journeys to Asia. And of course Cape Town is spread around one of the great seven wonders of the world today, the fabulous Table Mountain.
Gordon's Bay was eventually named after Colonel Robert Jacob Gordon, commander of the DUTCH troops in the Cape, (that's right!) who surrendered to the British on 16th. September 1795, thus ending 143 years of dominance by the Dutch East India Company, and the beginning of British Colonial rule of the Cape Colony. The resistance by the Dutch was slight, particularly after British warships had anchored in Simonstown in June 1795.
False Bay was first encountered by Portugese navigators in the 1400's, and the name was given to the huge bay because in the early days, many ships, particularly in bad weather mistook the area for the Cape of Good Hope, often with disastrous results.
The history of the area is fascinating and shows how the Dutch used it to grow crops and breed cattle in order to cater to their ships on the way to the Indies.
Today, Gordon's Bay is proud to be a delightful resort with its Bikini Beach rated internationally as "Blue Flag" and with access to so many well known places of interest. It is also part of Greater Cape Town.
