Just up Kloof Nek Road from the center of town is this thriving beach community. Plenty of trendy nightclubs, shops and cafes bring diners and shoppers, while tranquil seas and fine white sand draw sun worshippers and swimmers.

South Africa is much about beautiful beaches but this one is special. Extremely picturesque with big rocks making for a beautiful scenery. The sun sets on this beach so wish for clouds that will make it purple, pink, red, orange and yellow. It's a magnificent view. Lots of cafes, restaurants and bars along the promenade opposite the beach.

There is always something happening at Camps Bay Beach. The soft sand is a joy to walk on and the sound of the surf crashing on the sand is such a welcoming sound

This is a beautiful beach, with wonderful views but water, at least on that day, was very dangerous. Near toilets were a few people selling strange things and men entering ladies toilet. Maybe it was on that day, but it didn't seem very safe.

Beautiful and clean. Parking is a bit of a problem as you have to walk very far to access the beach, but worth every step.

Luckily it was a quite day on the beach - weather was not so pleasant. As always the beach is clean and accessible. During peak time/season the beach does get extremely busing with lots of irritating vendors walking up and down the beach

The time of year we arrived was nice for the crowds but unfortunately not as nice for the temperature. We were not able to swim, but did enjoy one full day of sunning on the beach. It was clean and relaxing. Close to a lot of nice restaurants. Definitely a recommended stop.

The beach was not one of the many beautiful beaches you would see in Cape Town, but many restaurants overlooking the Atlantic Ocean give great dinner and drink options while enjoying the sun setting in the west..!
