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.

Beach chairs & umbrella bit pricy but otherwise the best beach to sun tan! Atlantic ocean so dont expect to much swimming but good enough to cool down from the sun.

My husband and I spent the afternoon on the beach whilst staying in Cape Town.
Easy to drive out from Cape Town and we found no problems parking our car in the side streets just across from the beach. It was a glorious hot and sunny day, we visited in early March and the temperature was in the 80's and a nice clear day.
Camps bay has a lovely long and white sandy beach and was very clean, the beach is large so you don't feel over crowded at all, can rent sun loungers and umbrellas if required.
We had a great few relaxing hours, the sea is as too be expected cold! But refreshing after lots of sun.
Quite a few street traders moving around so if you want to buy any local bits i.e. statues, local paintings etc you have every opportunity, ice creams, cold drinks being offered on the beach too. Friendly local people and very polite even if you don't want to buy anything and they just move on.

We loved the view from the beach, it's certainly a beach in the world with fantastic views all around it! - The Twelve Apostles, The Lion Head, Table Mountain... Amazing.....
The beautiful blue sky shining down on the mountains, the palm trees and the white sands.
Be sure to wear strong sunscreen as the sun rays are strong.
Camps Bay itself is a pretty place with a great atmosphere, lots of restaurants, bars etc.
Great for eating al fresco and taking in the views and the people by the promenade.
It's a vibrant place and has a nice feel about it. We were glad we spent some time there.
Easy drive back to Cape Town.
Worth a visit for sure.

Although not a place to go swimming due to the rough sea, great beach for families, some areas are dog friendly while others are dog free zones. Lots of rock pools. Great restaurants and bars just across the road, fab atmosphere.

Wow the promenade is fanstatic with its white sandy beach and grass verge, suitable to both types of people who love the sand and the ones that dont. accrosss the road you have an array of restaurants and supurb hotels, hop on and hop off bus stops outside Bay Hotel for pick up and drop off. Wonderful beach to while away the hours and just chill

We stopped for brunch on our hop on - hop off bus tour. It was great for a couple of hours, particularly as the rest of Cape Town was caught in high winds. We are not beach holiday people, so it didn't hold long term interest for us, but worth a visit
