Incredible sunsets, clean white sand, mountains in the back -- simply an amazing setting for a beach. Even has some rock outcroppings that are beautiful. Beach is right across the street from the main downtown Camps Bay strip, so everything is close.

We were impressed with the gorgeous scenery with the beach across from the mountains. There are many great beach cafes and bars to enjoy lunch and dinner at sunset. We are hoping to spend time here again.

Camp's Bay beach is one of the nicest ones in the area. We walked here from Sea Point and really enjoyed it.

Spent a few days here during our stay and it's a beautiful location with great restaurants and cafes. Clean and not to bad for being hassled by hawkers.....

Amazing place to unwind and relax, the water was perfect. Only problem is that it is a little difficult to find parking, but other then it's a great beach to visit. While you at the beach visit one of the many ice cream parlous and...More

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.
