“Body beautiful”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Clifton is known for its beauties and freezing water surrounded by the most expensive real estate in SA. Always fun to visit, if parking is available and you have an appetite to for a picnic on the beach. Carrying the picnic basket down the stairs can be tiring but worth it, as there is seldom the south Easter blowing in clifton

“One of the best beaches in the world”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Clifton has the most fantastic location. It has white sands and a freezing ocean, which is a relief on a blistering hot day. You can hire a sun bed and umbrella, and they sell cool drinks on the beach. The passion fruit ice lolly is perfect for cooling down. 4th beach is best for families as it is easy to get to. 3rd beach is good if you prefer some peace.

“A vibe,”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

The whole Clifton/Camps Bay Area has such a vibe and while congested during December, is nothing as busy as other international beaches of this stature.
