The beach was beautiful and filled with beautiful people which made the average person (like me) feel a bit uncomfortable. But the resturants where great. Traffic was an issue and so was parking. I recommend taking the hop on hop off bus or a taxi so you don't have to worry about finding a car park.

The beach scenery is amazing although the day we were there it was a bit cold and windy. On a warmer day it would have been a great place to walk.

It is a very beautiful beach. It is a pity that we only stayed there for a shor time. And didn't have enough time to admire it and enjoy it.

Clifton has 4 beautiful beaches.. So wether you are a family or wants some solitude there's a spot for you!!. These beaches are so popular that's is packed by 10am every day during the summer months. Parking is a downside and there's loads of steps down to the beach.

If you can stand the cold water, Clifton is the place to be. A selection of four different beaches to have fun on and check out the views

there are 4 separate bays each with it's own character. A good place to escape the "cape doctor" Down side are the many stairs to carry beach apparel.
