Superb, Blue- flag beach with white sand and crystal clear sea. Water is too cold to swim, however. Great restaurants with views of the beach nearby, and a wonderful vibe all day long and all night long. Lots of clubs, shops, musicians near the beach. Great place to relax on a sunny Cape day.

Great beach during summer , can get over crowded and keep you belongings on a tight leash. if you go swim make sure someone watches your bags do not leave them unattended try not to take valuables.

Get yourself a seat at any restaurant by the beach, enjoy ur cocktails, great seafood , while you watch the sun set into the Atlantic Ocean. Not to forget you will be at the base of the table mountains ! It will be a day you won't forget for years to come :)

This was such a beautiful beach, looking up at table top mountain. The beach was clean and tidy, although there were lots of people trying to either sell you something or asking for money for all sorts of causes. But it didn't take away that this shouldn't stop a visit of this amazing location.

Family travelling with 14 and 16 year old daughters. Arrived in Camps Bay via HOHO bus. Great beach with lots of restaurants overlooking the beach/ocean. Visited the same day as going to Table Mountain and the V&W waterfront market, so did not have nearly enough time here. After arriving in Camps Bay, we all wished that we had stayed here... More

We always come here on a sunny day because of the stunning scenery and wide variety of restaurants/bars nearby. You can lounge on the beach or paddle in the sea, you also get one of the best views of Twelve Apostles here. Surfing here is also an option!

What a scenic place! Camps Bay is one of Africa's most expensive places to be, but once there you know why. One of the few beaches where you even enjoy turning your back to the ocean. You'll love what you see. You only need to be prepared for real cold waters.
