Great landscape

The only way to view the 12 apostles is by helicopter from the V&A waterfront area or try Table Mountain cable car for a cheaper but effective view

This place is a must visit. Amazing views, clean beaches. Camps Bay is the place you must visit if you just wanna chill with your friends with a couple of drinks & good food.

This is a lovely resort, however not what I was expecting from the website and the pricey nightly rate.. I had a mountain and ocean view room which was in a far wing of the old yet fairly reasonably maintained resort. It is a much smaller property than I was expecting and a little dated in wear..

These imposing heads at the back of Table Mountain and visible on the drive from Cape Town to Camps Bay are a stunning sight. Plenty of hiking trails explore the various ravines and valleys and cracks - but not to be attempted on your own.

The Twelve Apostles is named after the mountain range and with just the right angle of the sun particularly during sunset the 12 Apostles become very visible to the naked eye, the drive itself is amazing with one of the best serviced roads I have ever been on.

A quiet and beautiful pearl of a hotel, just 15 minutes outside of Cape Town. Lovely terrace reataurant, and also a terrace bar. A beautiful mountain pool, and spa. Recommended for hoonymoons.
