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 hangout with beautiful views”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

It was a great trip out, only a short drive from Table Mountain (and mid town Cape Town), there is plenty to do. From lazing on the beach (chairs to hire, but water quite on the cold side), do doing some shopping (a mall across the road from the beach), to wonderful restaurants overlooking the beach area. Great views/sunset on the rocks next to the beach side. Just make sure you come early to get parking (or be prepared to pay a few bucks for enclosed parking). As you are coming down from the mountain towards Camp's Bay, you will get treated to beautiful views (especially sunsets and sun rises). Just check the weather forecast for wind, as it can be VERY windy there.

“Beautiful beach and setting - breathtaking views”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Caps Bay was our favourite beach in Cape Town area. Magnificent vista of Lion's Head Table Mountain and Twelve Apostles as a backdrop. Buzzing seafront atmosphere with trendy cafes; the place to be seen on a weekend. Beautiful white sand and breaking surf. Only downside the water is freezing cold.
Overall quite breathtaking. Aim to get there by coming from Cape Town between Lion's Head and Table Mountain -the views are breathtaking.
