Bakoven is an intimate sun baking exclusive suburb in glorious Cape Town, hidden between Camps Bay and Llandudno. The scenic drive from Bakoven to Llandudno and Hout bay is one of the most visited in the Cape with heavenly views of the Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by a spectacular Nature Reserve.

The name Bakoven 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.

Beta Beach is private and sheltered and offers an ideal summer experience for the whole family, offering you a break from the hub and activity you would find at other larger beaches. Bakoven is famous for its breath-taking sunsets and privacy from the crowds, yet it is only a 10 minute walk to the hustle and bustle of the Camps Bay strip. Bakoven has a magnificent backdrop of the Twelve Apostles Mountain range. The suburb is tranquil and peaceful offering coves and tidal pools. Bakoven is filled with charming bungalows and seaside cottages.
