Camps Bay is fairly well equipped for basic needs.
Virtually all businesses and amenities hug the coastline, on Victoria Rd, also known as Beach Road.
Many are in the Promenade Mall at the Hout Bay end of the Victoria (Beach) Rd. This is collection of shops on two levels butting up against the Bay Hotel.
Camps Bay has a petrol station, 2 supermarkets, no banks, but three ATM’s, a post office, a dedicated police station. There is also a range of private security firms and an active community watch program.
It also has the churches of 5 denominations. You will also find a library, as well as primary, junior and high school.
If you love sport, there are tennis, soccer, squash and bowls clubs, aside from the cycling, mountain biking, hiking running and water-sport offerings of the local environment.
In Camps Bay, there is a dentist, doctor, optometrist practice and dedicated emergency medical services. The local NSRI (National Sea Rescue Institute) and the lifesaving club are two voluntary services which also have local bases.
Not to mention Camps Bay has its fair share of property agents, tour operators, fashion shops, breathtaking guesthouses, taxi and public transport options, restaurants, and nightlife, as well as several hotels.

Please note, we are really happy to advise and assist you where we can, and are very familiar with all the business and goings on in the area.
We don’t work on commission for any of these venues, our advice is free and without ‘secondhand car salesman’ bias. This year, we have even developed the first free Camps Bay Community Map, which we distribute throughout Camps Bay.
Having lived and worked here solid for 9 years, we have learnt a thing or two about Camps Bay. We have highlighted below some venues we favour and inside information we have gained by that experience.
Locals tend to frequent the venues on the Sea Point side of the soccer field. The restaurants do vary in price, quality and experience.
