Great views

The 12 apostles hills/mountains have great views. You can drive along the cost and see them. Even stop at the hotel and have a nice drink and views over the ocean.

The Twelve Apostles mountain range is a must-see in Cape Town, you will see this if you drive from Cape Town to Hout Bay. It is also well worth a climb, even just a short walk to explore the flora of Cape Town.

The Twelve Apostles again are a short distance from Cape Town, and an amazing backdrop to the beach, and quite spectacular rising up so close to the coastal strip. Absolutely loved this coastal drive.

Loads of great mountain hikes up this mountain, but you need to know routes and go with experienced hikers. KasteelPoort is the most popular and probably safest route up

Beautiful view of the 12 apostles from the beaches below. Ride the Red Bus and you'll get a great view. Wonderful on a sunny day.

My husband and I love this hotel for the on-site restaurant and bar. We love there boutique movie theatre and have only very good things to say about their dinner/movie nights, the experience has always been out of this world. Definitely worth the price! We even got engaged at this hotel in 2013 :-)

We stopped for bar snacks and cocktails one evening to watch the sunset. The balacony decor is very dated and not that well shaded if you don't get an umbrella. Unfortunately there were a couple of children using the bar area as a playground and neither the parents nor the staff did anything to stop that (I know its difficult... More

A beautiful view of the twelve apostles from Camps Bay beach. They stand out dramatically by the sky line and creates an impressive view next to table top mountain.
