Atlantic & Camps Bay

Head to the Atlantic coast for big skies, big seas and glorious sunsets with palm trees swaying against white sandy beaches.

Overview

The Trendy Atlantic Ocean ‘villages’ of Camps Bay

Camps Bay, Clifton, Bantry Bay and Sea Point bring out the Mediterranean aspect of Cape Town. Yet with echoes of the gleaming millionaire pads of California or The Hamptons too.

Spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, dramatic crimson sunsets. Palm trees swaying against white sandy beaches and alfresco pavement dining. This is summer holiday heaven and yet you’re only 10 minutes drive from the city centre.

Selection of Hotels

Our selection of Atlantic hotels includes Bantry Bay options. Such as Clarendon House, 52 De Wet and the majestic Ellerman House & Villas. These are closer to the city with glorious ocean views. But they are NOT easy walking distance to beaches.

Camps Bay hotels such as The Bay Hotel, Camps Bay Retreat and the Sea Five Boutique Hotel are all either on the sea front or very easy walking distance. Other options lie perched high on the mountainside with glorious ocean views. The luxurious Twelve Apostles Hotel lies 5 minutes drive from Camps Bay in its own nature reserve. And so is ideal for those wanting to get away from it all.

Further along the coast are the ultra-romantic Tintswalo Atlantic just below Chapmans Peak and Last Word Long Beach on the Cape Peninsula.

Cape Royale for Families…

I loved our stay at the Cape Royale Hotel in Cape Town. The Hotel is close to the V&A Waterfront and offer complimentary shuttle transfers in a 5km radius. The staff are very friendly and makes you feel at home from the moment you arrive. I especially love their attention to detail and my 4 year old daughter loved the princess crown they left on the bed for her after turn-down. We stayed in the Penthouse Suite which has 3 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a great view over the V&A. I think it is the perfect family hotel that offers 5 star service and great value for money. I would love to return soon!
