Camps Bay Beach

Camps Bay Beach

Camps Bay is just one of Cape Town's attractions, internationally known and loved by the locals, definitely one of the most beautiful and vibrant parts of Cape Town! Walking down the palm-lined main road, you can't help but succumb to the ambience of packed walkways, restaurants, and cafes. But it's not so much the vibe that attracts holidaymakers and locals alike, it starts with Camps Bay Beach. Directly off the main road, this little slice of heaven has platinum white sand and clear blue sea, making this beach a spectacular sight. Looking back, you will see Camps Bay nestled below the dramatic peaks of the Twelve Apostles. Best for: family vibes, sunbathing, beach sports, sunset drinks and food

What to do on Camps Bay Beach

Camps Bay Beach is great for joining in a friendly game of Volley Ball, playing some beach tennis, all the while catching some rays and showing off those muscles or cool threads. Just be sure to pack a hat and sunscreen, the sun can be extremely hot and taking a dip is for the diehards only as the Atlantic Ocean is cold all year around. Camps Bay Beach is also dog-friendly so take your best furry friend along, but remember the leash! Sunsets are a must to watch from this beach, pack a picnic basket and enjoy with a bunch of friends or family. Not your style? No worries, walking across the road will find you facing vibrant bars and restaurants. Find your vibe, sip on a few cocktails and enjoy some nibbles!

Camps Bay is definitely the place to be seen and to see some of the more affluent, beautiful people of Cape Town. During peak season from December to February, Victoria Road is packed with holiday makers enjoying our sun and sights. Camps Bay is generally busy all year round, parking is always packed so be there early or be prepared to walk, although walking is not a bad option, to take in the scenery. This area is well served by taxi’s so getting around is not a problem, however hiring a car will allow you to visit the many sites in and around Camps Bay easily.
