Bakoven, a tiny suburb bordering a small, secluded beach, this beach is one of Camps Bay’s best kept secrets. Its name came about from the Dutch settlers, literally meaning “baking oven”, and refers to a large rock off the beach that looks like an open oven, similar to those used by the early Dutch settlers. The shelly white sand is surrounded on both sides by a combination of big boulders and rocks, with a narrow channel of ocean, through which the NSRI rescue boats are launched.
Private and sheltered, this private area offers an ideal summer experience for the whole family. Famous for its breath-taking sunsets, and privacy from the crowds, yet only a 10 minute walk to the hustle and bustle of the Camps Bay Strip.
