Three beaches, three ways to stay cool - Camps Bay Beach - Part 2

Liam Smith January 25, 2018

The most popular and vibrant suburb in Cape Town, Camps Bay lies in an outstandingly beautiful setting as the jewel in the crown of the Twelve Apostles and Lion’s Head.

The beachfront is palm tree-lined white sand and the “Golden Strip” of Camps Bays Café’s and Restaurants, vying for their share of the perfect sunset.

There is always a small contingent of stand-up paddler’s, surfers and kayakers in the water (which is refreshingly cold), and no shortage of great cocktails on the other side of Victoria Drive. 

Head over to Café Caprice for a Bikini Bottom mixed with Cîroc pineapple, Angustora orange bitters, pear syrup muddled with fresh limes, pineapples and basil (don’t forget to Uber!).

Location: No need, if you’re not in Camps Bay, where are you? 😉
