Tucked at the foot of Table Mountain and overlooked by the majestic Twelve Apostles peaks, uber-trendy Camps Bay is Cape Town’s most exclusive resort. Luxurious houses with glistening swimming pools climb up the mountainside, while the hip and happening beachfront road is lined with palm trees, cafés, nightclubs, and gourmet restaurants for when you need a break from the sun.
In the 19th and early 20th centuries, day-trippers came to Camps Bay to picnic, swim in the tidal pools, and admire the breathtaking scenery. Today Camps Bay is Cape Town’s party beach, a beautiful, long stretch of white sand bordered by a boardwalk.
The setting is absolutely gorgeous, with the Twelve Apostles mountain range making for a craggy backdrop. The beach is spotless, with fine, beautiful, pristine sand, the ideal beach. But this is Cape Town, where the water is more for looking at than swimming. It’s a favorite for beach babes and surf rats on summer weekends and it is no secret that Camp Bay is where the beautiful people go.
