Depending on how you count, there can be as many as 17 apostles that make up this magnificent view - part of the spine of Table Mountain. Easily seen from the Atlantic Seaboard, and spectacular at sunsent!

The expanse of this view allows you to see the curvature of the earth, viewing that a sunset is a spectacular sight that I will never forget. Make sure you book in advance.

I live in Camps Bay, myself and a friend visited the spa. The staff are polite and respectful, the spa itself is very pleasant but with four people in the ladies changing room it was very cramped, this area needs to be bigger.

This was part of a tour so was cool to get in that trip but I'm not sure I'd make a trip just to see this.

The route from Camps Bay to Sandy Bay along the coast in the shadow of the Twelve Apostles is one of the most scenic routes imaginable - a lot for a city that actually has quite a view. Take a hike, bike ride or drive and enjoy the majesty of it all.

Great food, amazing massages, service and atmosphere. Just a bit expensive for most, but recommended.
