About Bakoven Beach

Bakoven is suburb on the edge of Camps Bay; blink and you will miss it as you drive out of Camps Bay towards Llandudno. Bakoven Beach is just a tiny strip of sand between a mass of giant granite boulders, some of which are said to be reminiscent of Dutch Ovens (Bakovens), thus the name of the area.

This tiny beach is residence to the National Sea Rescue Institute’s (NSRI) earliest terminal, NSRI Terminal 2, established in 1967.

The many boulders at Bakoven Beach, from which the beach derives it’s name, provide beach goers shelter from the infamous cape winds. This is also a perfect beach for Sunbathers looking for the opportunity to suntan in a relatively silent spot away from the Camps Bay crowds.

This hidden and lesser known beach is primarily frequented by locals and the odd holiday makers lucky enough to hear about it or stay nearby. Another favourite activity is to frequent this beach to watch the sunset as it provides a good vantage point in a more chilled environment.

Behind the beach is a labyrinth of slim lanes winding between the carefully spaced bungalows, or lush homes, all developing a cosy village ambience. Along with the cottages at Clifton Beach and also Glen Beach, Bakoven Beach has been claimed as a Heritage Site.

During the busy seasons, the beach can get quite full/busy pretty quickly due to its limited space and parking is always a problem.
