NileGuide Expert Says:
In summer, Camps Bay is covered in tourists and models, if this is your scene, get yourself some Sinnful ice cream (shop above Pick n Pay across Main Rd) and enjoy. Otherwise, pack some wine and enjoy a Cape Tonian "sundowner" sunset drink- though alcohol on beaches is technically illegal, sundowners on the various Atlantic beaches are popular. If its windy, head to Clifton 4th just down the road instead, this little beach rarely gets the Southeaster wind.
- Camps Bay Beach is a broad stretch of palm tree-lined white sand bordering the bracing waters of the Atlantic ocean. Set at the foot of a spectacular series of mountain peaks, the Twelve Apostles, yet only 10 minutes from the city center by car, it is one of Cape Town's most popular beaches. It is not a sheltered beach, so if the wind is blowing it is advisable to head for Clifton, another breath-taking and more secluded beach just around the corner. The beachside road has a festive atmosphere with a good variety of cafes and restaurants offering great sea views.
