The views of the ocean and the views of the land side are very interesting, assuming you don't have to drive this road. We loved the views and praised our bus driver. We never expected a seaside drive to be so exciting!

just a bunch of rocky outcroppings. There are more than 12 and not a high return. Would not recommend a trip just to see.

These stretch back form Table Mtn and most people have never seen or heard of them til they get there. Take a drive out as the sun is setting and have drinks in a lovely old hotel on the waterfront - beautiful!

With a great musician in the background, we sipped on French Champagne, while nibbling on a lovely platter of assorted canapés. Lovely sunset view, with the moon shimmering on the dark ocean.

we have seen sunsets all around the world, and we were very lucky to be here on an excellent day. It is the best we have ever seen. The colours are brilliant and last so long, changing all the time. There are many places you can stop and watch and photo, for free, but we went to the hotel to... More

The views of the rock formation and mountain range from various points down the coast are incredible.

Very pretty to look at although it is certainly not like the twelve apostles in Australia. Good picture spot with the twelve apostles behind you is from camps bay.

..these outcrops of rock are not quite as obvious as other mountain landmarks..they are, however, significant in the overall mountain picture surrounding Cape Town..count them for yourself..

My family and I stopped at Twelve Apostles hotel restaurant for lunch. The views and setting were outstanding. The manager on duty was very accommodating. The food was impressive. My only complaint?
