Cape Town’s St Tropez


Camps Bay is a contemporary suburb, a few kilometres from the centre of one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Cape Town.  Set against the picturesque backdrop of the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range, Camps Bay beach is one of the Mother City’s largest and most beautiful beaches.  Head South from the beaches of Clifton or North from Sea Point and you’ll discover the Chic suburbs of the beautiful Camps Bay.

Camps Bay abounds in attractions; the main place to be is Victoria Road which is jam-packed with trendy restaurants & pubs, bucket-and-spade shops on one side and a picturesque palm-fringed beach on the other.  Local life is casual and in the evening residents and holiday makers can be found enjoying sundowners at the many chic sidewalk cafés on the beachfront.

Camps Bay beach is Cape Town’s synonym to St Tropez.  It offers one of the most spectacular views of Lion’s Head and the Twelve Apostles and its powder white sand is packed with beautiful people, especially during holidays. Camp’s Bay’s infinite stretch of beach is perfect for  lounging around and its open flatness means that team activities like beach volleyball can also be enjoyed by the more energetic.

Due to Camp’s Bay’s protected position in the bay, the sea is relatively calm and good for swimming. At the Southern end of the beach, you will find a tidal pool, whilst the Northern part is great for surfing.

For the more active people try a guided bicycle tour around Camps Bay and Cape Town or one of the many walking trails. There’s really no better way to savour the charming Cape and understand the culture and heritage of the city.
