Cape Town's Atlantic Seaboard Accommodation

White Sandy Beaches and Breathtaking Vistas

When you consider high-end residential property, with prices escalating into the millions, then Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard should come first to mind. Arguably one of the most exclusive places to live, the area, extending from Green Point to Hout Bay, offers so much to visitors as well. Some of the places to check out include Camps Bay, Clifton, Llandudno, Sea Point, and the Waterfront.

The area is characterised by glorious white sandy beaches, the azure Atlantic Ocean, expansive homes with unending views, as well as a fantastic variety of food and dining options… with a tinge of that European-style feel.

The affluent suburb of Clifton, whose exclusive residences lie nestled among the cliffs, is considered one of the top lifestyle destinations. In 1984, the seaside area of Clifton was declared a National Monument, which prevented unsightly apartment block developments spreading across the idyllic scenery. There are four stunning beaches to choose from in Clifton, aptly named 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Beach, separated by dotted boulders. The Discovery Travel Channel rated Clifton as a Top 10 Beach in 2003 and 2004 worldwide.

For the locals and older folk, 1st Beach is the hangout, overlooked by high-end apartments, and is generally less populated than the other three. To catch a few rays, then 2nd Beach is the ultimate spot, while 3rd Beach is preferred by those who are seeking some privacy. If you’re looking for the trendy people, then the most well-known 4th Beach is for you. It has easy access from the parking area and is in close proximity to ablution facilities.

You will then find, located between the Lions Head, Table Mountain and Twelve Apostles mountain ranges, the glorious village of Camps Bay – internationally renowned for its fine white sandy beaches and wealth of wining and dining options. Because of its position, Camps Bay provides a protected bathing experience, with calm waters suited to swimming, and even a tidal pool at the southern end. The palmed-line beach is very enticing, but those waters are cold year-in and out!

After a very refreshing dip, why not try some of the Cape’s finest seafood at one of the many Camps Bay restaurants. The Blues Restaurant & Bar, established in 1987, is a Camps Bay institution, serving a delectable variety of West Coast oysters, mussels and crayfish. Another enticing option is The Roundhouse. Formerly the hunting lodge of Lord Charles Somerset, this European-inspired restaurant ensures the meals have a distinctive South African flavour.

Once satiated, take a stroll over to the Camps Bay African Craft Market, situated between mountains and sea. Enjoy the salty fresh air while you browse the quality, handcrafted curios, leather, beaded items and animal hides. And, if you’re feeling the need for a cultural boost, then catch a show at the Theatre on the Bay. This intimate 238-seater theatre puts on a range of top South African performances with drinks available at Dietrich’s Bar and food at the Act 1 Theatre Café.

Also forming part of the stunning Atlantic Seaboard is the scenic village of Llandudno, just 18 kilometres from Cape Town CBD and nestled in a secluded, peaceful cove. Here you will find one of the areas most picturesque beaches. Soft white sand stretches off into the distance, interrupted only by the untouched Cape fynbos. For those who prefer to throw some caution – and bathing suits – to the wind, then a 20-minute walk from Sunset on the Rocks will take you to the world-famous nudist beach, Sandy Bay.

A stroll around the upmarket Llandudno village is worth the time in itself. With the views of The Twelve Apostles on one end, mirrored by Little Lion’s Head and the Karbonkelberg Mountain the other side – and no commercial developments within the enclave – this is as photogenic a spot as you can find.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
