We visited this beach on my way down to Haut Bay. We stopped for some photography and to enjoy the view. It is a nice beach surrounded by mountains.

More serene than some, less crowded also. I enjoyed this set of beaches. Lots of photo ops as well, good year round. Great views too up and down the beaches and even out to the Ocean. Well worth checking out.

Beautiful Cape Town weather, fantastic spot that almost felt like the French Riviera. Wide variety of restaurants with interesting Cocktails and holiday vibes.

Drive the beaches from both sides, Look to the left and right, to the mountains and the sea. Stop if possible and go down to some of the beaches to feel the icy water and get impressed by the monstrous rocks.

Spent time playing in the waves and sunbathing. Beautiful views, clean, safe and serene environment, as well as less crowds. Beautiful place to relax either solo or with company.

If you are concern about safety, worry not, Clifton Beaches are safe. There are always guys patrolling making sure you enjoy your tan while they look after you and your belongings.

Clifton beach is the perfect location to spend a hot summer's day in Cape Town. Lots to see and do! Close to trendy restaurants, tourist attractions with lifeguards on duty

The atmosphere at beach 3 and 4 is fantastic. We liked it not only during the day but especially in the early evening.

We had a car, but you can also use Uber--there are cabs everywhere to take you where you want to go near the Central Cape.
