Kogel Bay is located between Gordon’s Bay and Rooi Els, and borders Clarens Drive, a 20-kilometre scenic route that boasts spectacular whale-watching along largely undeveloped parts of the coastline. Amongst locals, the beach is popular for outdoor barbecuing – because who doesn’t enjoy a view like this while waiting for the meat to be served?! Also, Kogelberg Nature Reserve is a vast protected area, known for its fynbos and wildlife.
