Beautiful beach with big waves, well maintained lawn and pathways. It is a little bit windy in winter but it was very nice to see the paramotors land in front of us – excellent activity to make the most of the view.

It was fun to walk on the nearby boulders and feel the breeze of the Waves. Relatively clean beach! I enjoyed going on runs alongside of the beach in the morning. Wonderful for surfers but man the water is cold!

Dreamy white sandy beach, shower facility's , views to die for. Can hire deck chairs and umbrella on beach. We had lunch from the Kauai next to the beach and ate it on the beach.

You need a pool at the hotel since the water is very cold. In spite of there are a ton of people swimming.

Most of the time it was quiet with a few locals on. Even at the holiday weekend there was plenty of room for everyone.

Best thing about Camp's bay beach is there no specific time to go there. You can enjoy the break fast at any of the road side restaurants or only coffee and reading any thing. We like evening the most as sunset is beautiful and the place gets more nice with good crowd hitting.

Whales and dolphins often spotted from here with great shops and atmosphere but very windy so make sure the weather is perfect when you go.

Camp's Bay Beach is a very beautiful beach with great space for laying out in the sun. The water is a little cold for swimming though. The waves were very light during our stay but I understand that they can be good enough for body and board surfing. There is a public shower at the end of the beach to... More

So Camps Bay used to be a bit of a party town. We planned to 'hit' it on a Saturday night. We loved the Whisky bar in Umi (expensive for the top end stuff - R70 for Laphroaig - but what a selection - cocktails too), but imagine our surprise when it closed at 1130 and we walked out to... More
