Clifton Beaches, Cape Town Central

4.6
The playground for wealthy locals, Clifton Beaches include a series of sand strips divided by large granite rocks. Overlooked by Lion's Head Hill, the beaches offer a chance to cool off in the cool water, surf, or participate in a game of beach volleyball. Popular with surfers and families alike, the cliff-fringed sandy shore offers scenic views of the ocean and protection from the infamous winds that prevail in the area.
