Beta Beach Bungalow
Bakoven, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa
With a secret beach and a secluded courtyard garden, this white washed clapboard bungalow is a wonderful beachside hideaway. It invites laidback living, lazy summer lunches and downtime that’s punctuated by the sound of the sea. With its white shutters and white-painted rooms, open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge, and big cushy beds and deep baths, Beta Beach is exactly the kind of hideaway that epitomises a relaxing beachside holiday.
Welcome to Beta Beach. This could be the ultimate beachside bungalow. It’s part of an enclave of traditional clapboard seaside cottages situated right on the fringe of the turquoise ocean on a stretch of coastline characterised by massive, seal-grey boulders worn smooth over the millennia by the relentless action of the freezing Atlantic. Cheek by jowl, the little white-shuttered cottages here cluster around lanes meandering down to the ocean’s edge, hidden by flowering frangipani and pungent bougainvillea. The only sound is that of the breakers washing onto the rocks and of the seagulls swooping to catch a whiff of a fisherman’s catch.
Beta Beach at Bakoven is close to everything that makes Cape Town a coveted holiday destination. It’s in sight of, and close to, hiking routes along the Table Mountain chain – including Lion's Head and the 12 Apostles. Ranging from gentle to strenuous, there are a variety of routes to choose from. Just five minutes away Camps Bay promenade is lined with cafes, bars and restaurants and, a little further on, is Clifton with its four beaches and well-heeled sun seekers. Bakoven is on the MyCiti Bus route, which means that the V&A Waterfront, the city centre and the City Bowl are just a 10-minute ride away. For guests with a hired car, there’s off-street parking. Take our kayak out for a spin on the ocean, go for a bracing swim in the chilly Atlantic, or simply take your daily breather in peace and quiet along the beach.
