Why Bantry Bay?
Originally called Botany Bay due to the botanical garden that was planted there for the purpose of cultivating medicinal herbs, Bantry Bay is now an affluent suburb on the Atlantic Seaboard in Cape Town.
This exclusive suburb boasts a fantastic location, amazing sea views, and a lack of wind – by Cape Town standards, that is. The city’s South Easter is well known for its blustery habits, especially along this coastline, but Bantry Bay gets a very good deal with its secluded setting.
The sea views and spectacular sunsets will have you reaching for your camera regularly. When based in Bantry Bay you are also within easy reach of many beaches. Being between Sea Point and Clifton you have a vast array of easily accessible restaurants, bars, and shops.
