Cape Town – Beach Time in Camps Bay
Camps Bay beach basks beneath the frame of Table Mountain, and during the morning, the sand is in the mountain’s shadow. By midday, it bakes, and by late afternoon, you can watch the sand turn golden beneath an ocean-setting sun. Your lodge will be positioned just one street from the beach. Your interconnecting rooms will share a spacious balcony with a gorgeous view of the ocean and sunset. From here, it will be just a few steps to the promenade and a wide variety of restaurants, including some that have a clear family focus. Camps Bay is Cape Town’s most popular beach destination, and after the private airport transfer, you will start to discover why.
