Clifton Beaches, Cape Town Central

4.6
The playground for wealthy locals, Clifton Beaches include a series of sand strips divided by large granite rocks. Overlooked by Lion's Head Hill, the beaches offer a chance to cool off in the cool water, surf, or participate in a game of beach volleyball. Popular with surfers and families alike, the cliff-fringed sandy shore offers scenic views of the ocean and protection from the infamous winds that prevail in the area.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches of Cape Town, with white sand and blue sea! It is worth the ride, however there are no nearby attractions such as restaurants and shops.
