Table Bay, inlet of the Atlantic Ocean, 6 mi (9.7 km) wide, lying off Western Cape, South Africa. Table Mt. overlooks the bay, which was visited in the late 15th cent. by Portuguese voyagers to India. The shore of Table Bay was settled by the Dutch in 1652, with the founding of Cape Town. The open anchorage is protected by large breakwaters.
