“Super white beaches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Loved the beach to just relax. The water is extremely cold. The beach sand is spectacularly white but be prepared for a long climb down and murder on the legs going back up.

“Nice beach in the shadow of Table Mt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Although the water was icy cold and you are asked to buy water or ice-cream every 2 minutes, it was still an enjoyable time at this beach. Wear sun screen - very hot sun!

“Average”

Clifton beach had nothing outstanding to offer. As Cape Town has many better beaches to offer i would not visit Clifton twice.
