HOTEL - CAMPS BAY BEACH, CAPE TOWN
Life is for
living at the most beautiful bay on the Cape Peninsula. A pristine
sweep of pale sand set beneath towering granite mountains, the high
keening of sea gulls and the roar of the waves as the Atlantic Ocean
tumbles to shore from an idyllic setting. This is Camps Bay, the
home of The Bay Hotel. A world apart, yet just five minutes drive
from the heart of Cape Town.
Built in 1989 and
perfectly positioned between the majestic backdrop of
the Twelve Apostles and
the white sands of Camps Bay Beach, The
Bay was the first beachfront hotel in Cape Town – a status
that it still holds today. With a management style based on
friendly relaxed charm and personal service, The Bay has proven
over the years that 5 star elegance
and sophistication can be achieved in an informal atmosphere.
With 72 bedrooms and 6 suites, The Bay
combines the personal service and discreet charm of a fine country
hotel with all the sophistication and efficiency of a world-class hotel. The
Bay is the perfect base from which to explore the wonders of the Cape

The upmarket suburb of Camps Bay has a typical village atmosphere and
is home to some of the trendiest restaurants and bars and one of the
most beautiful beaches in Cape Town. Local life is casual and in the
evening residents and holidaymakers can be found enjoying sundowners
at the many sidewalk bistros and restaurants on the strip.
Camps Bay is the perfect base from which to explore the wonders of the
Cape. Tours of the Winelands, Robben Island and other attractions, aeroplane,
yacht and helicopter charters as well as adventure tours such as sandboarding,
mountain climbing, deep sea fishing, parachuting, paragliding and surfing

The windless beaches of Clifton are probably Cape Town’s most glamorous
with the attractive and trendy folk flocking to it in summer. Clifton
has four adjoining coves where you walk down stone stairways between
luxurious bungalows to white sands. Bikinis and sunbathing are more the
order of the day than swimming, as the water of the Atlantic Ocean is
often icily cold.
Hout Bay has a diversity of sites to explore and activities in which
to participate. It is a rich botanical area most famous for the Protea,
which is South Africa’s national flower. There are 12 recognised mountain hikes ranging from easy walking routes
to strenuous clambering over rocks.
The harbour at the end of the beach offers a number of charter boats
available for sea cruises. The seal colony at Duiker Island and a nearby
shipwreck are popular attractions.
V & A Waterfront
Situated in the heart of Cape Town’s working harbour, the Victoria & Alfred
Waterfront is well-established as Cape Town’s premier shopping
and tourist destination with boutiques, restaurants, hotels, apartments
and offices only a few of the attractions on offer.
