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 or under cool outdoor showers. The popular bars and restaurants of Camps Bay lie only yards away across Victoria Road. One drawback is the wind, which can blow
hard here. It's also a popular vacation resort for Cape Town's models, movie stars, and the rich and famous; some people find it pretentious.
Victoria Rd., Cape Town, 8040, South Africa
