Camps Bay Walk (Self Guided), Cape Town

After touring monuments and churches, busy streets and lively cafes, galleries and museums, it is time to take time off from sightseeing and spend a relaxing day on the beach. There is no better place for this than Camps Bay, a truly beautiful beach area which is a favorite site for both locals and tourists alike and which has been favorably compared to the best beaches on the French Riviera.

This really is the beach to head for, with its long stretch of white sand, where the kid’s have great fun paddling in the azure waters and building sandcastles while everyone else soaks up the sun on rented loungers. The long, rolling waves also attract surfers and the tidal pools are fun to splash around in, even if the water is a little cold at times.

The stunning backdrop of the mountains makes for superb photos so naturally it attracts film companies taking publicity shots of the young and beautiful sporting the latest beachwear. It really is a beach to stroll along at the water’s edge drinking in the scenery and lots of honeymoon couples come here for the romantic views at sunset. You will find plenty of delicious little sidewalk cafes and top range restaurants along Victoria Road where you can dine on terraces overlooking the beach.
