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.

Lovely to walk and watch the waves. Didn't swim as it was winter (June). There is a tidal pool for safer swimming. Waves were huge and signs indicated rip tides. Lots of large rocks for sitting on if you don't like the sand.

We can't missed this especially when we are staying at Camps Bay Drive. There are shops and restaurants nearby. Lots of attendants when you park at the beach. Suggest to come in the morning when the views are quite good and more quiet.

You cannot visit Cape Town without at least taking the Atlantic seaboard route through Camps Bay and on to Hout Bay and then beyond to Cape Point! If you have time enjoy the beach and some of the fun spots for drinks or eating!

An umbrella is about 6-8€ and a chair about 4-6€ for the day some are less. It depends who you rent from, there are several different companies.
Are there beach chairs available to rent at Camp's Bay?
