Just past Clifton’s four beaches in Camps Bay, one of Cape Town’s hippest and most active neighbourhoods. On the other side of Table Mountain, the Twelve Apostles and Lion’s Head provide a breathtaking backdrop. Camps Bay’s lodging options range from opulent boutique hotels to quaint guesthouses, and they guarantee visitors to South Africa the highest level of natural beauty with a liberal sprinkling of glam.
Camps Bay, one of Cape Town’s most well-known neighbourhoods with upscale lodging options, is located on the opposite side of Table Mountain from the city’s four beaches, just past the Twelve Apostles and Lion’s Head. A long expanse of white sand bordered by palm trees makes up Camps Bay’s beachfront. Along its length, a boulevard connects a collection of sidewalk cafés, bistros, and eateries that specialize in Mediterranean cuisine and give the area its hip and cosmopolitan vibe. It buzzes during the day, but especially at night when Cape Town’s trendier crowd comes out to play.
Homes in Camps Bay may easily command several million dollars, and staying in the exclusive neighbourhood has become something of a habit for many tourists who return frequently to enjoy the sunshine and socialize with the locals. Homes on the upper slopes of Lion’s Head have breathtaking views of the Atlantic, and during the summer, the bay is generally calm, providing shelter from the wind and ideal swimming conditions.
The city centre with bohemian Long Street, stylish Kloof Street, and the numerous museums and galleries that make a good day’s trawling worthwhile are both minutes away from Camps Bay, over Kloof Nek.
Otherwise, Clifton’s four beaches provide some uncommon chances for people-watching, and the lawn above the fourth beach is a well-liked paragliding landing location.
Camps Bay is the perfect starting point for travellers to Cape Town because of its wide selection of guest homes, hotels, bed & breakfasts, and self-catering accommodations.
