“monument of nature”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

it is nice to see it exactly next to the top of the table mountain againt the lion head, if you see it as a complex of mountains is a nice view, but one more time i say that the best view is by helicopter

“Beautiful backdrop”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

The 12 Apostles mountain range is simply stunning!! It is such a great backdrop to Camps Bay, and just makes Camps Bay beach look even better!!

“Ahem....!! Hmmmmm....!! Still thinking what to write...”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

The South Africans are good at one thing. Give them any natural rock formation,they will brand it. And voila...it adorns all the tourist sites, maps, offices as a natural MustSee wonder. Well, twelve. apostles is one such site.
Nothing spectacular. All you do is tick one more thing off the Must do list in Cape Town.

“Twelve Apostles”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

We lived in Camps Bay just on the foot of the Twelve Apostles. Table Mountain from this side is even more beautiful than on its ordinary view. Clouds just flew down as water from above to the balcony of our apartment. It's a unique feeling - dinner with wine in the middle of cloudy mist.
This is also the luxury region of the city were you can meet different celebrities and have all kinds of leasure time. And Camps Bay beech is one of the most beautiful in Cape Town, but the ocean is very cold, only few braves can swim.

“Great place for a special occasion”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Service was fantastic. They have a great wine selection. The food was good too.

There is a fantastic view out over the atlantic. If the weather is good try to time your visit for sun set and have a drink on the balcony at the same time, it's well worth it!
