Camps Bay, on the Atlantic Seaboard, is one of the most popular local suburbs in Cape Town. Nestled in amongst the Twelve Apostles and Lion's Head, on the other side of Table Mountain, the scenery in Camps Bay is breathtaking and the cosmopolitan beachfront a vibrant throng of people on pavement cafés and restaurants both night and day.
Camps Bay is a long stretch of white, sandy, palm tree-lined beach and only a short drive over Kloof Nek takes you to Cape Town city centre. The beach is protected by the mountains from the wind for the most part and on hot days the cold water in Camps Bay makes an exhilarating swim or there is a seawater pool at the southern end of the beach. Camps Bay is trendy and locals and visitors come here to be seen. It is close to the beaches of Clifton, Table Mountain cableway and the V&A Waterfront.
