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. Bakoven has been called Camps Bay’s baby sister, but its exclusivity and charming village-like feel that the neighbourhood has managed to maintain has been deliberately kept this way to avoid the constant hustle and bustle of its popular counterpart.
“The high level of service and attention to detail was most impressive and appreciated, the service from start to finish was excellent. The sea views were amazing and the accommodation was lovely, not to mention our host was very friendly and professional.”
