Clifton Beaches <3 with sand so hot it could melt your feet and water so cold it can freeze your ankles. Besides the cold and the heat, the water is a beautiful frozen blie and the sand and beautiful glimmering white. Amazing place

I loved the ocean view and the beautiful long beaches. I am planning to go back and stay at this area specifically. There are 4 Clifton beaches in total.

The Clifton beaches are gorgeous with their beautiful white sand. Lots of tourists. Many places to eat, but parking is a problem. We were told ahead of time that the water was freezing so didn't even try to go in. Worth a visit.

I love that you can park and walk to different restaurants and then hop on over to the scenic beaches. A must visit when in Cape Town

Whilst not everyone's cup of tea, the icy Atlantic waters provide a pleasant circulation boost to the system, with gorgeous view of the mountains
