General Information

Betty's Bay is a small holiday town situated in the Overberg region of the Western Cape, South Africa.  It is located 96 km from Cape Town beneath the rugged Kogelberg Mountains and is on the scenic R44 ocean drive between Pringle Bay and Kleinmond. This village is the longest in South Africa at over 13 km.

In 1912 Betty's Bay became a formal whaling station running until the 1930s. Remains of the whaling station can still be seen at Stony Point. The area is named after Betty Youlden, daughter of the first developer of the area.

Activities and Attractions in Betty's Bay

Kogelberg Biosphere holds 1600 different plant species.  Permits to view this reserve can be obtained at the Oudebosch Office within the reserve. It stretches along the coast from Gordon’s Bay through to the town of Kleinmond and inland from the farms of the Elgin Basin through to Grabouw - a total of some 100,000 ha.

A visit to Stoney Point is a must. This is a breeding colony to the Jackass Penguin. You can take a stroll along the boardwalk and watch them going about their daily business and if you are lucky you might spot a whale or two.
