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.

“Great waves cool water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

This is a beautiful beach. Visited it at 6 in the evening and it was a wonderful evening. Sea was bracing and the waves knocked me over. Really enjoyed it. To give you an idea of how cold the water is it is the ssame as the Atlantic off the Irish Coast. Very cold for the first 2 minutes then bearable for another 5 but you will be ok for a about another 15 minutes after that. If you stick it that long you will be well cooled down.
There was great activity on the beach and it wasnt busy by European standards.

“Magnificent Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Camp's Bay Beach is just one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. With the sugar white sand and the scenic beauty of Table Mountain as a backdrop, you can hardly ask for more - and the nightlife and restaurant scene right on the doorstep of the beach, you can't be happier than staying right here on Camp's Bay!

“Fantastic beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

But the ocean is cold. We loved the beach and the atmosphere.
Friendly people and relaxing days in the sun. Also the possiblities to get massage in the beach tents.
It´s a great spot and the twelve apostles in the background as well as the table mountain makes the scenery just impressive and dramatic in full Afriican style.

“Too crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Full of tourists and traffic jams. Nice looking beach when viewed from the mountain. A little overrated, though.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

One of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Close to all the restaurants there. Lots of action on the beach, games being played. Safe parking, but a struggle to find parking. Very clean. The vendors is a disturbance when you're trying to relax / read and they're trying to sell you something every two minutes.
