It is as beautiful as it is diverse, and it is this unique combination that has earned Cape Town its renowned reputation of being one of the best tourist destinations in the world. Camps Bay is known for its luxurious mansions, its extensive beaches with chilly turquoise water and its main road, flanked with trendy champagne bars and chic restaurants.

Camps Bay Beach is fairly large, and is always speckled with locals and tourists that have come to enjoy the warm white sand and cool waters.
