Sports and nature

Camps Bay, as the name suggests, is on the sea and has a number of excellent beaches to enjoy. Oudekraal is made up of a collection of tiny beaches sheltered amongst the boulders and a well established picnic area with lawns, braais, covered seating areas with tables, benches and public toilets.

Lui Bay (also known as Witsand) a popular dive site, in 1977 two scrap vessels (The Antipolis And Romelia) were being towed around the cape when their tow line broke in a storm. This caused the Antipolis to run aground near Oudekraal while the Romelia floundered further south between Llandudno and Sandy Bay. The hull of the Antipolis is now visible at low tide.

Koeël Bay has an African open-air curio market, that sells hand crafted items from all over Africa.

Bakoven gets it name because of a large rock just off-shore with what appears as oven door in its side. There are several sheltered coves located in Bakoven. There is a Sea rescue base stationed here and a popular swimming beach is off Beta Close.

Camps Bay Beach, a Blue Flag Beach since 2008 is the largest white sand beach in Camps Bay. There is a seasonal life guard station with toilets at the west end of the beach.

Glen Beach, at the far right of Camps Bay beach, hidden behind large boulders is Camps Bay's best surfing beach. Short, fast rides and a small take-off area makes Glen Beach one of the hardest of Cape Town's beach breaks to surf and has resulted in a strong local atmosphere.

Nightlife

If you thought Camps Bay was amazing during the day, wait till you see it when the sun goes down. Take a walk down "the strip", the main road in Camps Bay, and enjoy the abundance of restaurants, trendy bars and other eateries available to you. If you're in the mood for some live entertainment, there is even a theatre nearby, Theatre on the Bay, where regular plays and other live acts can be enjoyed.

Unfortunately there are no hotels at this location at the moment.
