The upmarket coastal suburb of Clifton is reputed as the French Riviera of South Africa and with good reason. The shimmering Lapiz Lazuli ocean and powder-white beach-fronts attract locals and visitors in droves. Wedged between Sea Point and Camps Bay, the picturesque landscape of Clifton is set against the stunning backdrop of Table Mountain and lined with spectacular sea-facing apartments. The four Clifton beaches are divided into coves on account of the granite boulders that characterise the coastline, and the shores are typically laden with sun-worshippers during the sweltering summer months.
The Hopper and Atlantico Tours both fly over this beautiful suburb, affording you aerial views of the Millionaire’s Row and the four Clifton beaches. During the height of summer, see the winding M6 road loaded with back-to-back traffic, gorgeous yachts gently floating atop the calm sea and a flurry of activity that stretches all the way down to Clifton’s neighbouring suburb, Camps Bay.
