Just up Kloof Nek Road from the center of town is this thriving beach community. Plenty of trendy nightclubs, shops and cafes bring diners and shoppers, while tranquil seas and fine white sand draw sun worshippers and swimmers.

A must-see in Cape Town.

You have to see this, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, with great restaurants. Always clean and safe as well. Be careful - the water is very cold!

I went to cape town in january-february...the water was so cold, maybe it's the time of year, maybe it's not...but the scenery is breathtaking...there were showers along the beach to clean up the salty water and sand...surrounded by the mountains...what a sight!

Amazing views. Its a sandy white beach, with a canvas like backdrop of Tablemountian with clouds clinging to the tops of the mountain with clear blue skies. The waves are soothing to eyes and ears. Very clean

Had such a fantastic meal at Del Mar this week for a date with my hubby. Being from California, we are are partial to really GOOD Mexican food. This rates top of the top! The 4 star Michelin rated MEXICAN chef pulled out all the stops. We loved it! Definitely will be back. Great service too.

One of my favorite beaches in Cape Town, the sunsets are magical but the hawkers can be bothersome. It is best to just ignore them without a yes or no.

Only the cold water, and slight safety concerns we felt everywhere in South Africa, prevent this from being my top beach in the world. The backdrop is jaw-dropping with the Twelve Apostles towering over the coastline. The whole Cape Peninsula is stunning but this could just be the best bit.

A beautiful beach with the most amazing backdrop and lots of lovely bars along the front. An absolute favourite landmark of mine now.

Camps bay offers good white sand beaches and is very clean. It is the best beach as per me in Cape Town. The scenery is just lovely with water on one side and the backdrop of Table Mountain and Twelve Apostles on the other. The place also has a lot of eateries and good restaurants where you can relax after... More
