Cape Town love – Flickr pic of the day
Jane says, “After a morning hike up Table Mountain with students from the South African Education and Environment Project, a couple of us decided to head to Clifton Fourth Beach. With the beach virtually to ourselves, we swam, danced and soaked in the sunset. It is (as should be obvious from the photo) one of the spots I love most in the city.”
Fourth Beach is the perfect family beach, and has excellent facilities including public toilets, changing rooms and places to buy cooldrinks and snacks. Umbrellas and deck chairs are also available to rent. Blue Flag status has been awarded to Fourth Beach for adhering to stringent international environmental standards.
Life guards are on duty during peak season and on the weekends, and swimming is relatively safe – although one should never underestimate the undertow.
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
