  • We were lucky to visit camps bay and lovely eating outlets on surrounding it. You can have some really good wines on camps bay and the sunset looks amazing. It was worth spending an evening over there...  more »
  • It is one of the most beautiful beaches of Cape Town, luxury houses, good restaurants and lots of hype. But is it worth your peace? Value: for free. Positive points: natural beauty, structure, easy access. Negative points: The main negative point fired are the ambulants in that region. There are many and they come all the time to disturb. Although they are polite, they always come with my friend's talk, as you are and are trying to sell their products. If you say you don't want them, they keep insisting, saying it's just to look at. I found it extremely unpleasant and the administration of Camps Bay could take some measure with regard to that, because I will never go back on this beach myself.

  • The beach is for a good chill on a hot day. Any day is safe for a person to gather around with their family and friends. Alcohol and Drugs are prohibited. And drive safely and keep your cars locked at the parking spots.
  • It's a nice beach to go and relax there. The water is very cold, so if you are brave you can try it. They have Lockers and Latrines. You can rent out chairs and umbrellas from vendors.
