Just up Kloof Nek Road from the center of town is this thriving beach community. Plenty of trendy nightclubs, shops and cafes bring diners and shoppers, while tranquil seas and fine white sand draw sun worshippers and swimmers.

Went with friends, we had some sushi and seafood and it was all delicious, they even made some diary-free sides for our lactose intolerant friend.

Incredible sunsets, clean white sand, mountains in the back -- simply an amazing setting for a beach. Even has some rock outcroppings that are beautiful. Beach is right across the street from the main downtown Camps Bay strip, so everything is close.

You can get there by uber, taxi or the hop-on hop-off bus. Fantastic views of these amazing mountains that are iconic of Cape Town.

We walked along the shore and it was such a calming experience. The waves were quite big and splashing on the far rocks. Its much quieter and the sunset was outstanding....

An umbrella is about 6-8€ and a chair about 4-6€ for the day some are less. It depends who you rent from, there are several different companies.
Are there beach chairs available to rent at Camp's Bay?

Yes there are many chair and umbrella vendors. They will approach you as soon as you walk onto the beach. Prices vary from 4-6 Euro for a sun lounger and 6-8 Euros for an umbrella for the day.
