Clifton is an exclusive residential area and is home to the most expensive real estate in South Africa with Villas nestled on the cliffs with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. Clifton is neighboured by the suburbs of Camps Bay to the south and Bantry Bay to the north.

Clifton has a set of four beaches, aptly named First, Second, Third and Fourth Beach, that are separated by giant granite boulders and have almost pure white granitic sand. These four beauties are one of the few areas in Cape Town well protected from the notorious south-easterly wind. This is probably why it is so popular with bathers! Moses Beach, situated just before First Beach, appears and disappears seasonally with the sand being washed away by the tides.

Clifton beaches offer visitors a fabulous place to relax, bask in the sun and enjoy the magnificent scenery. Clifton attracts many visitors, especially during summer months, and is an ideal place to holiday when you are in Cape Town.

Clifton offers a wide range of accommodation – from multi-level, ultra-luxurious villas built on the slopes of Lion’s Head to modern bungalows with direct access to the beach, or designer apartments with uninterrupted ocean and beach views.
