Under the looming Twelve Apostles and Lion’s Head, with views out across the turquoise-colored sea, Camps Bay sports some of the trendiest places in Cape Town to see and be seen. Head south from the beaches of Clifton (or north from the buzz of Sea Point) and you’ll discover the chic suburb of Camps Bay. The main drag, Victoria Road, is jam-packed with funky restaurants, trendy pubs, and bucket-and-spade shops on one side, and a palm-fringed beach on the other.
It’s here, on the white sands of Camps Bay, where you’ll find bronzed and buff locals flexing their muscles and showing off their volleyball skills. While supermodels and rock stars of the world are known to hang out at Camps Bay, it’s also a great place for families – the sandy beach is wide and flat, and parking is sometimes more available than at nearby Clifton. During the Easter break and around the Christmas holidays, Camps Bay is packed to the brim.
Visitors come from far and wide to enjoy the friendly vibe and excellent restaurants (not to mention gorgeous views) in Camps Bay. You’ll find a number of good places for a glass of wine or cocktails along Victoria Road – and for holiday makers and locals alike, Camps Bay is a favorite spot to watch the sun go down. If you’re feeling like a dose of culture, find out what’s showing at the gracious Theatre on the Bay. For a bit of pampering, you could make use of the Camps Bay Retreat Skin & Body Centre, or head off to one of the other spas or yoga centres in the area.
