About Bailey’s Cottage Beach

Bailey’s Cottage Beach is more a patch of sand between two rocky outcrops or points than it is a beach. Swimming isn’t advisable on this remote little beach, which is more popular with fisherman than anything else; it’s biggest attraction being more historical…

When the tide is out there are a few rock pools to paddle in, but the ocean is best left to the fisherman who catch Steenbras and/or Galjoen among other species pending on the season.

You could also wonder around the rocks enjoying the scenery, browse the activities happening at Surfers Corner or walk the promenade to the nearby towns of Muizenberg and Kalk Bay.

Situated above the beach, is the historical Baileys Cottage after which the beach is named. Known as Falangisina @ Baileys Cottage, this stone bungalow (and now Guest House) was home to Sir Abe Bailey, a good friend of Cecil John Rhodes.

While being Sir Bailey’s home, this building was also used as a look-out post and policing station, keeping an eye for enemy ships and illegal trading over the years.
