Beautiful white beaches with a brilliant blue sea. Albeit a little cold water if you have come from Durban but a great place. Go to either Clifton 3 or Clifton 4.

With views of the twelve apostles and the Atlantic Ocean, you can't go wrong in Clifton. Clifton consists of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, & 4th, with 4th being the most popular and busy to 1st being the more exclusive and quiet. Clifton is my favorite spot to sit back, relax, and enjoy soaking up the sun. :)

Any sun seeker visiting Cape Town must visit one of the Clifton beaches. How the beaches work is basically as follows. There are 4 numbered beaches.

Clifton 1 - Considered to be more for the Clifton locals
Clifton 2 - For the younger, liberal, hip crowd. Models wanting to get a tan come here
Clifton 3 - Preferred by the gay community
Clifton 4 - The largest of the beaches considered to be the family beach.

However there is a Clifton "5"; a secret beach if you like, which only the locals know about and which I may cannot write about.

Happy swimming.

Whole the coastline is really fantastic to experience. One beach more beautiful than the other and the scenery around makes one feel really relaxed
