Kogel Bay Resort is located between Gordon’s Bay and Rooi Els and borders Clarens Drive, a 20 kilometre scenic route that boasts whale watching opportunities along largely undeveloped parts of the coastline.

The resort is situated between high mountains, surrounded by indigenous fynbos and a 4 km sandy beach, and forms part of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. The high mountains shelter the beach from the strong south-easter winds during summer, making it a sought after beach and camping facility.
