The beach is lovely with nice white sand. Not too much commercialism. But many people in busy times as new year. It can be windy there sometimes too and the water is freezing ! But it's a nice place and the restaurants and bars nice to visit.

Great views for sunset and strolling on the white sand beach while going nowhere slowly, everyone minding their own business, good place to be in, water just too cold for swimming.

We overlooked Camp's Bay from our holiday let. Beautiful place. We love walking on the beach and this is a good walking beach but a short one because of the many rows at either end. This beach is great in being used by lots of different people at different times of the day and is a very clean place. It... More

The beach is very nice and certainly worth seeing but even though we were there at "low season" it was a little crowded. The weather was great so I can see why there were so many people out but could not imagine how crowded it would be at "high season".

This is one of the more beautiful beaches you will find. It's also very clean. Because it is in a very popular tourist area parking can be difficult. There are a number of cute shops and restaurants nearby.

OMG. If you only have time for one beach day on your South African vacation you must stop at Camp's Bay. The waves are many and the crashing sound fantastic plus Super soft white sand I could have stayed here all day. You can rent an umbrella and lounge chairs so you can enjoy the beach in comfort. Vendors sell... More

This is a great stretch of white sand, with great Atlantic waves crashing in. The beach was full of people by mid morning each day, but very few should venture into the water. I went into my ankles and got the equivalent of 'brain freeze' - 5 degrees Celsius is cold! And it can get very windy in summer -... More
