“Super white beaches”
Reviewed February 9, 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”
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!

Reviewed January 27, 2014

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