The magazines don't have to enhance their photos of this place. It's literally as beautiful as the photos. No exaggeration.

Very cold water! Definitely no swimming. Amazing sunsets, although a little windy - but definitely bearable. It got chilly after sun down, so don't forget a jacket.

Probably the trendiest beach in Cape Town where the beautiful people go. The sand is white and the water is blue ( but cold). The bodies are heavenly. It's normally very crowded and hot in summer but well worthwhile.

Cold water, clean sand and always a great vibe... this is how I have encountered Clifton beaches so far... and in summer with a bit of luck, you can encounter one of these marvelous sunsets!!

I only got 1 day to spend on this beach but I enjoyed it. My only downfalls are, how cold the water was for the middle of January(summer) and the lounge chair sharks(guys trying to force themselves on you with lounge chair rental and blocking of sections) . The sand was clean though. A few small interesting craft stands. I know further down they have many more shops and restaurants but I wasn't looking for that personally.
I am a sun worshiper so I am usually tan or have a base, I seldom burn, well I got a burn on this beach. It must be more intense. Be careful in that dept.
