Life’s a beach in Camps Bay
Camps Bay beach is a long, soft, and wide stretch of sand that is bordered by palm trees along the main road. It is nestled between the peaks of Lion’s Head and the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range, only fifteen minutes from the city centre on the road to Hout Bay, and is surrounded by nature. Camps Bay, in contrast to several of Cape Town’s other beaches, provides easy access to stores and restaurants, which are located just across the road. In the summer, these gleaming trendy restaurants are jam-packed with gorgeous people, celebrities, and young people looking to have a good time. Glen Beach, which is right across the street, is a popular spot for surfers at all hours of the day and in all seasons. Climbing up the hill behind the main strip, you’ll discover enormous mansions owned by both the local and foreign aristocracy.
There is, however, another side to the suburb. Camps Bay manages to be both family friendly and stylish at the same time since it is a historic, lived-in district of town. The beach is clean and easily accessible for children, the surf is generally calm, and there are some interesting pebbles to discover. Walking uphill on the back roads, you’ll come across a more tranquil, village-like ambiance. A few little ancient houses, a charming little fairy glen, and of course the mountain itself will be visible as you travel up the path. From there, you can see the all of Camps Bay, with its curled white beach, and further out.
Camps Bay is the ultimate fun, crowded destination during the summer months. In the winter, you have more breathing room, but there is less of a scene to behold. You may choose which is your thing, or, if you’re lucky, you can come in the spring or autumn when the weather is nice, the vibe is fantastic, and there’s plenty of space. Camps Bay is an excellent choice for a base in Cape Town at any time of year because it is not only charming and social, but it is also a short drive away from Sea Point, the City Bowl, and the Waterfront.
