Stranded on Clifton – A Cape Town Tourism photo essay

Capetonians have been tweeting non-stop over the stranded Japanese longliner, Eihatsu Maru, which ran aground on Clifton First Beach on Saturday, May 11, 2012. Naturally, our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group members captured it on camera. Despite the furore over the ship's beaching, the large vessel does nothing to hamper the breathtaking beauty of the atlantic seaboard coastline. 

The City of Cape Town reports that efforts to salvage the Eihatsu Maru are ongoing. 

Below are a few images of the Eihatsu Maru stranded on Clifton First Beach by our members:
