    Some of the softest, whitest sand you will ever feel/see! Clifton 4th can be a bit poser-ish but they get quieter the further along you go. Clifton 1st is gorgeous.

    Clifton comprises four small pearly white beaches, nestled in between massive boulders. While all of them are great, I prefer Beach 2 because it is most sheltered from the Southeasterly winds in summer. On hot days, parking can be a bit of a problem but the spectacular sunsets make up for that.

    Clifton 4th is for families, 3rd is for gay oiled men, 2nd is for college students, and 1st is for hipsters and 20 somethings. With only a row of rocks separating each beach from the next make sure you hit them all up. November through March Clifton, beaches 1-4 are pumpin’ with locals and tourists alike and all for good reason, because in the words of Zoolander “it’s ridiculously good-looking” oh and the beach isn’t so bad either. Head down the long trail of stairs to arrive at a boulder beach heaven. No shops, no restaurants, only guys selling African trinkets and sunglasses from china.

    Cool down with a granadilla lolly from a vendor and be sure to bring your sunblock, after all it’s Africa.

Description

The imaginatively named First, Second, Third, and Fourth Beaches are some of the most popular in South Africa. Each has its own character. First Beach has the strongest current and is most popular with surfers and a younger crowd. Third is popular with a gay contingent. Second and Fourth Beach have a more potpourri collection of people, though you’ll find the highest concentration of beach-goers and more families at Fourth. All these beaches act as the front yard to some of South Africa’s most expensive and exclusive real estate.
