Enjoy a scenic beachfront
Camps Bay sits just a ten-minute drive from The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa. Our charming, five-star hotel is ideally located for access to Camps Bay. Camps Bay is well known for its scenic beachfront outlook, with the dramatic silhouette of The Twelve Apostles mountain range providing a striking backdrop to the white sand bay. Cafes, cocktail bars and boutique shops give character to the bustling promenade, and there’s plenty to see and do inside well-known Promenade Mall.
If you’re looking for a lively evening entertainment scene, Camps Bay is an excellent option. Its many clubs, bars and restaurants will keep you occupied until the early hours, should you wish to venture out from the tranquility of The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa. We offer complimentary return transfers from the hotel to the V&A Waterfront via Camps Bay at regular intervals throughout the day between 8am and 9:30pm, daily.
With scenic waterfront views
Ten minutes in the opposite direction, you’ll find Hout Bay. Hout Bay offers scenic waterfront views surrounded by impressive mountain terrain. The Atlantic Ocean lookout spots dotted around Hout Bay are truly spectacular, and well worth stopping at if you get the chance. Hout Bay’s Bay Harbour Market is the place to be on weekends, with local traders selling souvenirs, regional produce and street food alongside live music.
When conditions are good you can head out on a boat cruise from Hout Bay Harbour to Duiker Island, also known as seal island, where you'll have the chance to observe hundreds of cape fur seals on the rocks. From the boat, you may also see dolphins, sun fish, and whales out at sea. If you’d like more information on the ocean excursions on offer in and around Cape Town, please visit our Outdoor Adventures page or speak directly with our concierge team.
