Supermarkets in Camps Bay - for self catering


I will be self catering in Camps Bay next month and wondered how easy it will be to find a well stocked supermarket, or better still some good local produce.

I love to BBQ and know that S.A. has some great meat, fish, and fresh veg but how easy is it to find in Camps Bay?

1. Re: Supermarkets in Camps Bay - for self catering

Camps Bay doesn't have a big resident population and, as such has virtually no shopping. There is one small, not very well stocked, Pick n Pay supermarket. The nearest decent supermarkets are along Main Road in Sea Point - Checkers, Pick n Pay and Woolworths Food (like M&S).

Otherwise in the opposite direction (12mins) there is decent shopping in Hout Bay. The Woolworths Food and Spar supermarkets have both been recently extended and Checkers is also OK. Some good Delis in Sea Point Main Road. No local butcheries on the Camps Bay side of the mountain that I know of - other than in the supermarkets in Sea Point or Hout Bay. All the specialist butchers that we go to are either in the Southern Suburbs (try Sacks in Westlake, Tokai) or in the City Bowl (try Gardens Continental in Kloof Street). For Fresh Fish, straight off the boats, the best is Fish4Africa in Hout Bay Harbour.

As always, Van de Caab has hit the nail on the head. Whenever we stay in Camps Bay we always shop for our braai in Hout Bay. We also buy our beer & wine there. Good news that Woolworth's has been extended. :-)

PS If you get a hair cut in the shopping centre, it's accompanied by a lovely head & neck massage. I always pop in & I'm very follicly challenged!!

Lots of good eateries in Camps Bay though & prices are not bad (especially by London standards).
