View to the Clifton Beach in Cape Town
Did you know that Cape Town is home to some of the most picture-perfect beaches in the world, each with its own unique advantages. The four beaches in Clifton (named 1st through 4th) on the Atlantic coastline are impossibly beautiful. Most people can only handle a few minutes in the cold water, but the setting is well worth it. Each beach attracts its own type of crowd: 4th Beach is family friendly and most popular; 3rd Beach is suitable for people who appreciate a little more privacy, as it's not as busy as neighboring 4th beach; 2nd Beach is frequented by students and beach sport enthusiasts, and 1st Beach mainly used by the local residents and surfers.
