Driving by the Twelve Apostles is always an amazing experience. The winding coastal road is pleasant and the views from any of the viewpoints is amazing. Even with strong, winds, the feel of air on your face as you drive by is exhilarating.

A lovely row of mountain peaks that make for some special scenery indeed. Majestic and dramatic soaring up above the beach, the Twelve Apostles should be seen on a trip to Cape Town.

From the City you have a beautiful view of the 12 Apostles on top of Table Mountain, until you travel to the 'back' of it, which is actually its side view, from Camps Bay and Sea Point.

This range of the twelve peaks is best viewed from an helicopter, wherein you get to see the fascinating image of the sequentially formed peaks.

This range of hills, an extension to Table Mountain, makes a majestic backdrop to Camps Bay. As all of the hop on hop off buses come this way, you should get a chance to see them even if you don't stop in Camps Bay. A...More

All tourist buses stop at the large parking place and everybody piles out to make pictures of the bay and the "Apostles" - are there 12 ? Look, it's a nice bay and they are nice cliffs, but really ?
