The lovely upmarket beachside suburb of Camps Bay, situated on the magnificent Atlantic Seaboard of Cape Town, South Africa, is one of the country's premier tourist destinations and is the perfect place to find accommodation in Cape Town.
Immensely popular among locals and international tourists alike, it is world-famous for its immaculate palm-fringed beaches, trendy nightlife, and spectacular Table Mountain and cool blue ocean views.
If you are on holiday in Cape Town and looking for accommodation, Camps Bay is the place to look. Nestled between the Twelve Apostles and Lion's Head, with the majestic Table Mountain as its iconic backdrop, trendy and cosmopolitan Camps Bay's idyllic white sandy beaches and swanky bistros, pavement cafés, restaurants, cocktail bars, and nightclubs make it an exciting hub of activity during the hot summer days and all through the night.
Lying just beyond the four fantastic Clifton beaches, the views from almost anywhere in Camps Bay are nothing short of mesmerising. After a busy day at the beachfront, there's nothing better than winding down the day (or starting off the night) watching a beautiful African sunset from one of the many superb restaurants or cocktail bars.
Accommodation in Camps Bay near the beach is ideal, as it is protected by the surrounding mountains, offers splendid swimming and suntanning opportunities for water babies and beach bums, sheltered from the infamous gusty Cape Town gales. The seawater pool at the southern end of the beach is a very popular and safe swimming spot for the little ones.
Located close and conveniently to the Cape Town city centre (with the hustle and bustle of Long Street and Kloof Street and boasting many fantastic museums and galleries), the Table Mountain Cableway, the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town International Airport, the marvellous Cape Winelands, and Cape Point (all 15 to 60 minutes' drive away), among many other wonderful Cape Town attractions, Camps Bay is ideally situated as a base from which to explore the many exhilarating highlights of the Mother City and a great option if you are looking for accommodation in Cape Town.
