Fodor's Review

The spectacular western edge of Table Mountain, known as the Twelve Apostles, provides the backdrop for this long, sandy beach that slopes gently to the very cold water from a grassy verge. Playing Frisbee or volleyball is very popular on this beach. The surf is powerful, but sunbathers can cool off in a tidal pool on the west end of the beach or under the outdoor showers. Camps Bay's uber-trendy, popular bar and restaurant strip lies yards away across Victoria Road. The wind can blow hard here—or not. Inasmuch as the strip is a refreshment break for groups of cyclists training for the annual Cape Argus, movie stars, models, and the rich and famous like to stay around here. It tends toward the pretentious on weekends. Amenities: food and drink; parking; showers. Best for: partiers; surfing; walking.
