The mountains provide the backdrop for a wonderful beach. The story of the Twelve Apostles with the twelve mountain peaks is worth hearing!

High Tea is value for money, but the ratio of sweet to savoury needs more balance. They were very accommodating of food allergies, but do nothing for special occasions, even though they ask you to note this when booking.

Is there really twelve? It depends on who you ask, whether the fog is in hiding them, how you count them, your particuler view! You be the judge.

Perfect place to relax and unwind. Close to the beach and great restaurants. And really is a site to wonder. A must see when in Cape Town.

We saw the Twelve Apostles from Camp Bay. There are actually 12 buttresses on the sea-facing side of Table Mountain. As it was a cloudy day, we did not have a vivid view of the 12 Apostles.

Driving by the Twelve Apostles is always an amazing experience. The winding coastal road is pleasant and the views from any of the viewpoints is amazing. Even with strong, winds, the feel of air on your face as you drive by is exhilarating.

We took the City Sightseeing HOHO Bus tour and after seeing Table Mountain we continued on the road to the other side of Cape Town to see the other view of the mountain range . This part of it is called the ''Twelve Apostles ''...More

A lovely row of mountain peaks that make for some special scenery indeed. Majestic and dramatic soaring up above the beach, the Twelve Apostles should be seen on a trip to Cape Town.

Can't comment on shuttle options, but there are taxis and busses that can get you to the Waterfront and Table Mountain.
