Got to camps bay beach about 10am and it wasn't busy loads of space. The beach is very clean, the water very cold and the back drop of the mountains is jaw dropping. Lots and lots of seafront cafes to sit and watch the world go buy. There were quite a few hawkers about but they were not in your... More

A lovely beach with a sensational mountain backdrop. Loads of bars and restaurants and a great place to watch the sun set in the evening. The Sea is always cold and if the wind blows the beach can be a bit unpleasant as the sand blasts your skin, however pick a good day and you will not regret at it.... More

Like I said to many of my friends Cape Town is a mix of Miami/USA and Rio de Janeiro/Brazil. Beach is amazing the weather was also very nice, beautiful place to visit.

Clean sandy beach, sometimes windy and always cold in the sea, and rough at times, only the experienced should swim there. The experience however is spoiled by a plethora of vendors selling drinks and ice cream, sometimes it felt like they came every minute Parasols and beds available to hire

Camps Bay is the best location for your holiday in Cape Town. There are no chain hotels due to high rise restrictions, but pick a boutique hotel and have walking distance to the freezing shark infested beach and tons of great restaurants overlooking the potential carnage.

We live in the area, and often walk our dogs on the beach early morning. Its is always maintained very well, and of course the strip of restaurants along the beach strip is world class. With the back drop if Lions Head, and Table Mountains 12 Apostles is simply breathtaking. The beach is facing west so the sunsets are incredible.

warm, clean sand overlooking a very cold ocean. amazing views during sunset. hard part despite it's beauty is the wind. for last 3 days it has been howling and there is zero chance to,lie on the beach without getting sandblasted. do not get me wrong. on non windy days, despite cold water, this is a home run for natural beauty.
