Great Dvie spectacular scenery

Have done the Cliffton Beach area on several trips. It is part of a great drive down to the Cape. Well worth exploring properly. Very scenic area.

The neighborhood has beautiful Million Dollar homes and great white sandy Beaches. This is a perfect place to relax on a summer day.

Clean and Private. Take a tour and visit all the little towns close by. Take the hop on hop off bus if you do not have transport or if you want to see it all and do not want to drive.

My favourite being Clifton 1st which is more secluded and dog friendly, even with ice cold waters the blue flag beaches are kept pristine and views are amazing!

Drove this area by tour bus. Gorgeous coast. Homes have spectacular views from the cliffs overlooking the beaches. Watch the seals sun bathe and play.

Great place for mingling and watching some very nice man candy. My favourite beach but only when it isn't windy or you will get a facial from the sand flying around! There are beach chairs and umbrellas for rent at a decent rate compare to other places around the world! No facilities, but you walk over to the other beach... More

The beautiful Clifton beaches is worth a visit - if you're planning to relax, and get a great tan. But if you're planning to swim, be prepared to freeze!

It is really nice to see the sunset in Clifton 4th Beach and really cool to walk through the 4 beaches. Do not miss it!

The view from the road is nice and the beach is really beautiful. Just don`t expect a pleasure bath, because the water is really cold.

Popular with tourists and locals alike. Great beach scene - one of the "must be seen" venues. Venture off 4th beach to get a little less crowdy.
