Picnics on the beach are a holiday staple that everybody needs to experience. For soft sand lovers there is the iconic Camps Bay beach with its’ one-in-a-kind view of the ocean and majestic mountain backdrop. If the sand is not what you’re looking for there is always the rocky outcrop between Camps Bay and Glen Beach which affords all the same views (some say better).
Things you will need:
A nice big blanket
Drinks and snacks (please remember, open alcoholic beverages are illegal on our beaches)
Frisbees, beach bats etc etc.
For snacks we would highly recommend Kleinsky’s Delicatessen in Sea Point, especially their Bada-Bing Bagel (Beef bresaola, provolone cheese, rocket and lemon Dijon vinaigrette). You could also pop by Giovanni's
in Green Point, and browse their fantastic selection of cold meats, freshly baked breads, fine cheeses and jams to stock up for your excursion.
A vast menu, of both cocktails and food, DJ’s, gilded sidewalk café culture and an enviable position with an amazing view. Try the Jo-Honey Rooibos, honey infused Bacardi Oakheart, with BOS tea, cranberry juice and grapefruit zest, it’s mellow and deep, be careful though, these can creep up on you ;-)
Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 09:00-22:00 (Bar opens until 02:00)
This Asian sushi and fusion restaurant is a perfect place to nip in and enjoy a lovely cold Sake Melon Slush on a blisteringly hot Cape Town day, made with Sake, Melon, Ginger and Honey it is ice cold and super refreshing! Try the Spiced Pear Bellini too, it’s fantastic.
Sandy B at The Bay Hotel is the intersection of summer and elegance, it’s being poolside, and beachside, at the same time. We highly recommend the iconic and signature Hibiscus & Rooibos martini, with gin, hibiscus extracts, lime, cranberry extracts and rooibos tea, it’s local flavours at an international level.
Camps Bay is the trendy heart of the Atlantic seaboard, the palm-line, white-sand beach with an abundance of vibey restaurants and classy eateries complete the picture postcard setting. Against the backdrop of the twelve apostles along the length of Table Mountain and its pristine beaches, this gem has been cherished by locals and travellers alike from as far back as 1786, when The Roundhouse was first established as a guard post by the Dutch East India Company.
