Clifton Beaches

Victoria Rd, Clifton

Clifton Beaches is the see-and-be-seen spot for scantily clad sunbathers. The water here is freezing, but if you can brave it, it's a relatively safe area for swimming. The impressive houses that cling to the cliffs are some of the most desired and expensive real estate in South Africa. The trendy beaches are known by their numbers and each has its own scene. Beaches 1 and 2 are for the "beautiful people" or those who wish they were, Beach 3 has a prominent gay scene and Beach 4 is touted as a family beach and is also the most easily accessible. Make sure to pack whatever you need because there is not much else available next to the water besides umbrella and chair rentals for R25 each.
