This superb hike takes you along Table Mountain's famous Twelve Apostle Peaks, a comfortable, mostly gentle, flat walk following the upper reaches of the lower slopes of the mountain, with breathtaking views of Camps Bay's white sandy beaches and the Atlantic ocean's azure blue waters, merging with the sky's blue and the earth's curvature. After lunch, shuttle or bike (choice is yours) out to the picturesque seaside town of Llandudno for the afternoon's walk, following the wild coastal footpath to Oude Schip from Sandy Bay - with the peaks of the Twelve Apostles now behind your, covering your tracks and keeping vigil on your progress.
As you round the last bend of the upper trail (2 hours or so from the departure point), gently descent into Camps Bay where a sumptuous lunch awaits, either prepared as a picnic or at a seaside table (seasonal), the perfect reward and sustenance after an invigorating morning's activity.
With lunch done, shuttle or bike (choice is yours) out to the picturesque seaside village of Llandudno for the afternoon's beach and coastal walk section. This follows a wild meander along a coastal contour path, with the crashing waves of the atlantic, your constant companion, only a few feet away. The trail takes us to Oude Schip via the white sandy beaches of, appropriately named, Sandy Bay - with the peaks of the Twelve Apostles now towering in the back you, keeping vigil and witness to your progress. At Oude Schip, the turning point, enjoy a cold beverage and a rest, taking in the sun and surf, while contemplating one of the Cape's most well-known shipwrecks. As the sun sinks lower towards the Western horizon, backtrack on your earlier footprints, only now the sun is a warm caress on your back, while it lights up the massive peaks of the Twelve Apostles, towering directly over you.
