Camps Bay Beach

Camps Bay, Glen and Clifton Beach
Exquisite Camps Bay Beach, a broad palm tree-lined beach bordered by a grassy area with shady patches, is iconic to Cape Town. Being one of the most beautiful beaches in Cape Town, it is loved by tourists and locals alike. Guests at 15 Views can be the first to meander down to the beach and lounge in the sun or take a dip in the bracing ocean.

Glen Beach is a small and beautiful secluded beach adjacent to Camps Bay and Clifton 4th Beach, one of Cape Town´s Blue Flag beaches, is a popular hangout for international jet setters and beautiful locals. Take a champagne yacht cruise from the Waterfront and anchor at Clifton 4th Beach for an experience to rival the top seaside vacations of the world.

Camps Bay Touchies
If you spend a beautiful late afternoon on the beach, you can’t but notice a bit of excitement over the touch rugby game being played in the Eastern corner. An informal cousin of rugby, and fondly known as “touchies”, this Camps Bay game is, in fact, an institution. Established 17 years ago, it is still going strong twice a week (weather permitting), where enthusiast locals strut their stuff. All social, of course. There are 50-60 regulars, ages ranging from 20 up to the 60’s, and some members even commute all the way from Somerset West to join the game. Do what the locals do - cheer them on, or just join in.


Camps Bay Camps Bay Strip
With its trendy beachfront setting, the beach road features cafe's, restaurants, cocktail venues, coffee bars and champagne bars, offering visitors scenic views of Camps Bays' white sandy beach whilst dining or toasting the end of a perfect day.

Less than 500m from 15 Views, you can drop in at the long-standing Sandbar restaurant, or the upmarket and elegant Grand Café. Further along, be enticed by a diverse selection of coffee and breakfast hangouts. Visit the Promenade to stock up on groceries or some of the most highly rated ice cream in town. Then linger on until sundowners, when the strip wakes up to the eclectic rhythms pulsing from the restaurants and clubs until the early hours of the morning.


The Grand

The Grand
Harking back to an era where life was an altogether more laidback and genteel affair, The Grand in Camps Bay brings a renewed sense of old-fashioned sophistication to Cape Town. Dressed in shades of dusty pink and rich rose hues, The Grand’s sense of nostalgia and relaxed elegance is a welcome reprieve from the ever-buzzing Camps Bay strip.
Like its phenomenally successful predecessor, The Grand Hotel in Plettenberg Bay, Cape Town’s Grand is about pleasure without pretence, style without sham – the go-to place for a pink martini and no-frills food that’s redolent with flavour.

Camps Bay Retreat The Retreat Kitchen
The Retreat Kitchen at Camps Bay Retreat is a breathtaking mix of sea views combined with the serenity of a retreat. Set within the beautiful Earle’s Dyke Manor, patrons are invited to dine on the terrace, overlooking the sprawling 4.5 acres of indigenous gardens and sea views, or in the intimate dining room. Breakfasts and lunches are a treat, surrounded by the natural beauty of the retreat, whilst dinners on a chilly night can be warmed by the glow of the fire in the dining room.

Theatre on the Bay Theatre on the Bay
For a taste of the arts, visit Pieter Toerien's Theatre on the Bay. Offering a good mix of local and international drama, musicals, comedy, cabaret, music and dance, it is also home to the Act I Theatre Café, open for dinner both before and after the show, with a small yet diverse seasonal menu.
