Camps Bay Beach

This is one of Cape Town's famous beaches in the morning sun. It is Camps Bay beach. It was originally the Baai von Kamptz, after Friedrich von Kamptz, a Dutch sailor who arrived in the Cape in 1778. The widow Anna Wernich owned the farm Ravensteyn, which adjoined the bay, and Von Kamptz married Wernich. This is a Blue Flag beach, a certification of the Foundation for Environmental Education. Camps Bay is an affluent suburb.
