Clifton

About the area

The upmarket Cape Town suburb called Clifton is a paradise of secluded beaches between granite boulders. It lies between Sea Point and Camps Bay, two of Cape Town’s most renowned locations, and is only ten minutes away from the city centre, making it an ideal place to visit. Clifton has a reputation for being the gathering place of the trendy and glamorous. You’ll soon see why as you walk along its 4 immaculate beaches of white sands and glistening waters, paired with an incredible fynbos-mountain backdrop.
