The Camps Bay suburb of Cape Town is all about beaches and nightlife, whether you're a Cape Town resident in search of a weekend getaway or you're a visitor.
The wide, white sand beaches of Camps Bay sit beneath the imposing Twelve Apostles peaks and Talbe Mountain itself. Vacationers play beach volleyball, go surfing, and simply relax in the sand. By night, Victoria Road hums with activity – it's the place to see and be seen, lined with trendy nightclubs and restaurants.
Camps Bay Beach has been listed as a Blue Flag Beach since 2008, meeting strict environmental standards.
Camps Bay is roughly four miles from Cape Town, and is easy to reach if you've got a rental car. If not, taxis are readily available and the trip is short enough to be inexpensive. There are plenty of lodging options in Camps Bay, too, if you want to spend the night.
