The beach offers a wide variety of activities, with rolling waves, tidal pools, restaurants, shops, and even a theater. Right next door is Glen Beach, which challenges even the most advanced surfers with its powerful waves. Across the street from the beach lies Café Caprice, a lively drinking spot featuring well-crafted cocktails and unobstructed beach views. For sumptuous bites of seafood and sips of aromatic wine, book a reservation at Paranga, a prime dining spot. If you want to make the most of your vacation, read on for our list of the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Camps Bay, South Africa, for stays.
