Camps Bay

You know that summer has arrived in Cape Town when you suddenly get that urge to phone some friends or a loved one and go for an evening picnic after work. As the temperatures rise what better way to relax and unwind after a hard day’s work than to pack a delicious picnic and some good red wine and head off to your favourite picnic spot. If you are on holiday and staying in Cape Town accommodation here are just a few of our favourite places to picnic in and around Cape Town.

Oudekraal Beach

Take a scenic drive out of Cape Town to Camps Bay located right on the seafront with the Twelve Apostles Mountains as a backdrop. Pass through Camps Bay and before you reach Llandudno you will stumble across Oudekraal Beach, a little gem of a picnic spot, a sheltered cove with huge boulders and a clean sandy beach. You can either choose to picnic on the beach itself or opt for one of the designated picnic spots located under the Milkwood trees. Arrive in time to watch the sun-setting on a perfect day in Cape Town or enjoy watching the resident seal colony that has made its home here. READ MORE
