About Clifton Beaches

Hiding from the visibility of the coastal road and vicinity of the wind, Clifton is a secluded collection of four beaches naturally divided by boulders and rocks. Taking a stroll across all beaches is easily accomplished despite natures scattered beach borders.

Clifton Fourth situated on the Camps Bay side is the biggest Clifton beach with amenities including toilet facilities, cold outdoor showers, umbrella and chair hire, roaming snacks and refreshments vendors and a restaurant at the small parking area.

Clifton Fourth is also most popular of the four spots for ocean dips due to the calm waters and lifeguards. This Atlantic alcove teases with transparent turquoise waters, yachts floating on the postcard horizon and water temperatures cold enough to qualify a swim as an extreme sport although no-one seems to have broken this news to the kids who happily fill their beach buckets with water for their sandcastle moats. Games of touch rugby, Frisbee and beach bats pop up in any towel flanked gaps.

Sundowner picnics are splendid although be sure to feast on all your basket food so that the load on the journey of a hundred stairs leading to and from this spectacular shore is lighter on the way up. Park wherever you can find a spot on Victoria Road, parking is scarce between the penthouse residents and the resident sun worshippers. An official blue flag rated beach for experience and safety a visit to Cape Town is unfulfilled without dusting bleached Clifton sand off summer sandals.
