With its stunning Blue Flag beach, Camps Bay is a popular and upmarket destination for families and singles.

Besides the clean, white sand and blue sea, Camps Bay also offers a row of waving palm trees, all backed by a selection of coffee shops and restaurants, overlooking the beach.  The beach is also a popular place to watch the sunset and in the summer months, look out for celebrities enjoying all the benefits of Camps Bay.
In the summer months, Camps Bay beach is a fun vibe with international beach volleyball tournaments and the Summer Beach Festival.

For your safety, lifeguards are on duty in the summer months and sunbathers can enjoy a range of cold drinks and ice creams from the roaming beach vendors. 

For those who don't like sand in their picnic, enjoy the grassy area next to the tidal pool, where children can swim in safety.

For more energetic visitors, head on a great sea front walk from the beach in Camps Bay through to neighbouring Glen Beach. If you still have the energy, take a stroll past Maiden's Cove and Bachelor's Cove to finally end up on Clifton's 4th Beach. For a quick route back, head down Victoria Road all the way back to Camps Bay.
