"Clifton" Clifton Beach Tip by cleocat

Clifton Beach, Cape Town: 5 reviews and 7 photos

  Rock Pools Clifton
by cleocat

Clifton is not for those scared of heights and narrow roads. The houses seem glued to the cliffs. They park on top of their roofs or so it seems. Any builder that can build a house here deserves a reward.

Most of the houses are more mansions than houses and are worth a few million. Not in my price range but very nice to look at.

Then Clifton is famous for it's beaches.
The water is too cold for me but the kids disagree. This photo was taken in April and Rian had no problem with the water.

The little rock pools are excellent for them to play in and obviously not that cold.

Unfortunately it is also the ideal spot for beach parties and some of these areas can be very dirty.
