Nestled between majestic peaks, including the Lion’s Head and the Twelve Apostles, and the azure waters of Atlantic Ocean, Camps Bay is a paradise to be explored. The stunning landscapes of these mountain ranges and the fascinating views of the vast ocean are a perfect prelude to a promising and exciting vacation that awaits everyone.
A renowned tourist destination, Camps Bay offers not only a beautiful location but also a wide array of activities to its visitors from different parts of the world. From its many lovely beaches to long terrains of rugged splendor, from the long stretch of cozy restaurants to world-class hotels, Camps Bay is an ideal place for an unforgettable trip.
One of the main attractions in Cape Town is the amazing Table Mountain. For those who love hiking, a diagonal route from Camps Bay, on the Pipe Track trail, offers access to the summit. Porcupine Ravine, on the other hand, is a more adventurous and rough hike from Camps Bay to the top of Porcupine Buttress that allows access to the most exhilarating sceneries in town. No wonder it is one of the most popular trails of Camps Bay. Another favorite hiking trail, and an easier one, is the Grootkop Walk. The walk starts from Theresa Drive and includes climbing Kasteelpoort, which is the shortest way to Grootkop. For spectacular views from the Twelve Apostles’ peak, though, nature lovers should take the more relaxing and enjoyable Camps Bay Pipe Track Walk.
The coastlines and beaches of Camps Bay are some of its major attractions. Travelers come here for adventurous and relaxing vacations and holidays. Being the largest beach in this area, Camps Bay Beach is one of the most renowned and busy ones, too. Located along Victoria Road, the main road of Camps Bay, and across a row of trendy shops and funky cafes, the beach is easily accessible and often flocked by families, vacationers, and even famous people stopping to have some fun under the sun. Another popular hang-out for a real beach experience is Glen Beach. The ambience is lively, with many surfers, and granadilla lolly vendors crowding the place.
Shopping at Camps Bay African Craft Market is another must-experience when visiting Camps Bay. This brilliant market between Camps Bay and Hout Bay is one of the best open-air markets you will ever find. Beaded jewelries, wooden bowls and other handmade African crafts are all available here. You will never run out of great souvenir items to buy, except that you will probably have a hard time deciding which ones to actually purchase and bring home to family and friends. So, remember to come by the market before your vacation ends.
What is a great vacation without eating where the local diners go and sampling the delicious local delicacy a place has to offer? When planning your gastronomic adventure in Camps Bay, one of the first places you should check out is Azure Restaurant. Have an amazing dinner al fresco and feast on their signature dishes of roast duck and Peppadew Tart. Guests might choose their five course dinners or a very unique experience: delicious dinner with movie in their private cinema. If a guest or traveler is looking forward to enjoying the local seafood fare, one of the best places to do so is the Codfather Seafood and Sushi. They have an extensive offering of sustainably sourced seafood and their no menu system allows the diners to order and enjoy whatever they want. The large sliding windows of the restaurant serve as irresistible eye candies that lure guests to venture in and grab a bite of the delicious items they offer. If a tourist is clamoring for some party vibe, on the other hand, one of the best places to check out will have to be Dizzy’s. The vibrant crowd is enough to keep everyone in a good mood, not to mention the amazing pizza and exceptional seafood dishes.
