Camps Bay, Atlantic Seaboard

One of the most vibrant and popular suburbs in Cape Town, Camps Bay lies just beyond the four beaches of Clifton in an exceptionally beautiful setting amongst the Twelve Apostles and Lion’s Head, on the other side of Table Mountain.

The beachfront of Camps Bay is a long stretch of white, palm tree-lined sand and along its length is a boulevard that forms part of a series of pavement cafes, bistros and restaurants specialising in Mediterranean fare that has earned Camps Bay its trendy and cosmopolitan character. It hums all day and in particular at night when Cape Town’s trendier set come out to play.

Homes in Camps Bay fetch a few cool million with ease and staying in the much sought after suburb has become something of a practice for many visitors, who return again and again to soak up the sun and mingle with the pavement culture.

Homes up in the reaches of Lion’s Head offer fantastic views over the Atlantic and the bay is relatively calm during the summer months offering protection from the wind and pleasant swimming conditions.

The Table Mountain cableway is only minutes away from Camps Bay, over Kloof Nek, as is the city centre with bohemian Long Street, trendy Kloof Street and the many museums and galleries that make a good day’s trawling worthwhile.

Otherwise Clifton’s four beaches offer some rare people-watching opportunities and the lawn overlooking 4th beach is a popular paragliding landing spot.

A huge variety of guest houses, hotels, bed & breakfasts and self catering options makes Camps Bay the ideal base for visitors to Cape Town.

OK, so what has not already been said here about this, probably the best destination in Cape town? The beach is fabulous, the people are friendly, some outstanding restaurants, and if you choose to stay here, nearly every house has a view that's to die for! Only one word of warning... avoid the beach and the beach road on New Years day! its just too crowded for words. All of Cape town seems to descend on Camps Bay and its chaotic! But every other day you'll think you're in the best city in the world!
