Camps Bay, located in Cape Town, South Africa, is home to just many beaches that lie across the southern coast of Africa. I honestly don't know if there is any beach more beautiful in the world that is as popular as this beach. It's one of those beaches that celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Lady Gaga, and other people I don't care about hang out. 

Behind the beach lies a set of famous mountains, such as Table Mountain and Signal Hill. Closer to the actual beach, the streets are lined with incredibly expensive beach houses and restaurants that are home to any food imaginable. The site is absolutely stunning.

While it may be the most popular beach in the country, it also seems quite quaint. For the amount of traffic that goes through the beach, getting a nap in the sand isn't really that difficult (as long as I watched my stuff to keep it from getting robbed). While getting robbed does tend to happen a lot in South Africa, it is more likely to get approached multiple times to buy water from some locals. 

There is also a good chunk of nightlife that takes on after dark. As a tour guide once told me, "It is very posh nightlife." It is very unlikely to find anyone out and about in Camps Bay wearing basic clothing. From the expensive drinks to the amazing view, it has been one of my favorite places on earth to go out.
