Camps Bay Beach
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.
Personaly there is no other place on this earth which has so much history and beauty.
Camps Bay is very cosmopolitan,"it's the place to be seen" as i read on one upmarket magazine on a train to London a few weeks ago. And it certainly is true.
I am fortunate as my husband has his family living quite close to Camps Bay, my only thumbs down is the cold sea. As the sea runs from the Antartic, local people do attempt to have a dip but it's literally that! I simply have a paddle to cool down then out. I have visited Cape Town during the month of October, November and February. My best advice is to go anytime between that time.
The restaurants are amazing at Camps Bay, but be warned you will pay a lot more as Camps Bay is a tourist area. Head for green Point, not so attractive but a lot cheaper, there are still nice Restaurants to be found at Green point. Fancy volleyball? then Camps Bay is for you. It's a young beach with good looking people soaking up the sun. I could go on and on, just try it! visit Cape Town it's not as dangerous as we believe it to be. London, is just the same. We all have to just keep vigilant and not look like tourists! Keep your camera and all valuables safely hidden, there are very unfortunate people all over the world who just want to live! They have to steal or they will just die of hunger. The townships are heart breaking to see, if i ever win the lottery i know that i will deffinately help these people. Maybe one day someone will.Enjoy your time in Cape Town it's fantastic!Who knows, i may see you all on the beach at Camps Bay in February!!
the two weeks i was to spend there turned into two months and almost a lifetime. i still dream of cape town everything was good the people are nice the wether was awesome the food was great. fun for all its a must see before you die place the viues are unreal. i came back to the states and started selling everything to move back to cape town. i would have but i had something go wrong here and didn't make it back yet.
Camps Bay beach with its adjacent Clifton beaches is the most beautiful place in the world.Incedently some of the most beautiful people in the world can also be found here, no matter wjat your taste. No other place on earth offers such an abundance of incredible,natural beauty within 10 minutes drive of a major and vibrant global city. Warm winters (50F) and mild summers(80F)makes this a tourist friendly place al year round. Also visit the majestic Cape Point when you are here, it is where you can watch the Indian and Atlantic oceans crash into each other from way up on the cliffs...awesome!
A really fabulous guesthouse and a great alternative for anyone wanting to get away from the formal hotel experience. Guests
are made to feel welcome at Chartfield and it's perfect if you want to enjoy Cape Town's many attractions ...
