    Growing up on the western side of the Cape Peninsula I read your comments on Camps Bay beach with interest. Whoever wrote the review may have been to the beach but certainly never swam in the sea. Waem water indeed. As kids there were always several friends that were absent from school when the water reached a lovely temperature of 60 F
    The locals don't rate Camps Bay as a great beach, Clifton 1 & 4 are the choices.

    It's a very beautiful place with lots of cafe and restaurants. The ambiance is amazing. We watched the sunset beside the sea. I highly recommend camps bay. After returning to my home country I was thinking about moving to Camps Bay :D

    Stunning local beach, not too busy, beautiful for catching golden hour sunsets or going for a cold 'wimhof' style morning swim.

    Beta beach we love you.
    Local beach that is tiny and relaxed.
    Get there early and enjoy.
    No chair or umbrella hire. This one the locals go to to get away from crowds and chill out.

    Aptly called Glen beach as it is at the far end of a valley (glen) that runs down from Kloof Nek. The stream has been diverted to supply the Camps Bay area with fresh water. The beach is a bit more secluded as it is separated by huge boulders from the main beach. Clean and pleasant with spectacular views on Lion's Head and Table Mountain.

    Not many are aware of the "back" of Table Mountain and Kasteelspoort is one of the hiking routes on that side to the top. The detour past the reservoirs combined with the fantastic views as well as the flora make it incredible.

    Studio G at The Bay Hotel is really one of the nicest art galleries I have visited in a very long time. The beautiful paintings are placed among some exquisite sculptures. Really a must see.

    An attraction if you want clean clothes fast. if you deliver before 9am M-F, clothes are returned by 530pm. A must when you have few clothes with you on your travels. Extremely pleasant staff and the results have been great. Clothes not on fast track are clean generally befor 1030 am the next day. I highly recommend this company

    So excited that my favourite spa is open again. I booked a pedi and hair wash and dry and was treated like gold! I recognised some familiar faces which was great, and the prices even felt like it was the same as what I paid pre-covid! Will be back for my monthly spoils. Thank you for opening again!

    Gorgeous setting and warm friendly can-do service. (Often so lacking in a five-star hotel) Fabulous South African artwork all the way up to the lavishly decorated Leopard bar. It feels like you’re on a luxurious cruise ship! We also enjoyed exploring a trail through the fynbos, with the iconic 12 Apostle peaks looming overhead. A highly-recommended experience, this beautiful hotel.

    As a bunch of 50- 60 year olds we have a day touring on Harleys. Great fun, very friendly and felt safety was their top priority . We toured the vineyards and George was so helpful in making sure we had reservations, great tables and an overall fabulous time .
