Owner description: 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.

It is a trendy clean beach. Preferrred the Clifton beaches because of the privacy and the white sands. Restaurants around Camps Bay are a bit over priced and all the beaches are too cold to swim in

My trip to camps bay was amazing, it was wonderful, the view is so exciting as you view table mountain up from the beach and they are beautiful shops behind the beach, and what is most exciting is that you can use the Red or blue bus to the beach' hop on hop off bus then you ride back again...

Camp's Bay beach is a very lively place, with lots of restaurants around and the beach itself is excellent with great views of the ocean and the mountains in the back side.

The water is freezing cold and it is often windy, but who cares? This is South Africa and the views are amazing and the mountainous backdrop is very beautiful indeed with lots of restaurants and bars just metres away. When you’re done walking or lying on the beach why not take in a cold beer or two in one of... More

Camps Bay is like a little SOBE on the Cape. A strip of bars and restaurants across the street from a large beach. It is a very popular beach with both tourists and locals, so be prepared for crowds on weekends and public holidays.
