Clifton

Clifton- About the Neighbourhood

Clifton boasts some of the most expensive real estate in the country.

It is a residential area nestled on the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and best known for its enclaved beaches which are protected from the notorious South Easter wind. The cluster of four beaches is accessed via narrow, steep stairs that run from the top of Victoria Road, through the residential structures and onto the various beaches. It is known for its chilly waters – First Beach is popular for watersports especially surfing, Second beach is often frequented by those enjoying volleyball. Third beach is the smallest and is popular among the local LGBTQ community while Fourth beach is the most popular for attracting beach goers who want to laze around and soak up the rays

Yachts also usually anchor off Fourth beach during the summer season when sunsets are as late as 8.30pm. In addition, Clifton’s 4th beach has also been awarded the Blue Flag status in recognition of its safety and tourist standards. Another attraction on bordering Camps Bay is Maidens Cove which has two tidal pools and designated braai facilities so is very popular for group gatherings over weekends and holidays

Key Attractions in Clifton

National Geographic put Cape Town’s beaches at number two in the world, and the set of four at Clifton makes it easy to see why. Named first to fourth, they are separated by huge granite boulders.

Popular Attractions in Clifton

There’s no shortage of things to do and see in Sea Point. From the vibrant streets to the stunning walks along the Promenade, there’s plenty of fun and adventure for everyone. 

Places to Stay in Clifton

Property in Clifton costs in the tens of millions of rands but it wasn’t always like this; the small size of the properties can be attributed to the area being laid out by the City of Cape Town for returning soldiers who had fought in World War I. The original bungalows, now all but replaced by new structures, were built from the packing cases that conveyed imported motor cars during the 20s and 30s.

Places to Eat & Drink in Clifton

Café Caprice, Paranga, Blues, La Belle Bistro and Umi, which has a fabulous whisky bar, are highly sought-after spots where long lunches blend into sundowners then merge into dinner and dancing.
