Clifton and Camps Bay
Clifton and Camps Bay beaches have been awarded Blue Flag status. The beaches are separated by falls of granite boulders and have almost pure white granitic sand. The four beaches of Clifton are one of the few areas well protected from the notorious south-easterly wind, which make it extremely popular with bathers. Camps Bay is the largest white sand beach in the area and is opposite Camps Bay’s main tourist hub, featuring multiple hotels, top restaurants, and shops.

At Cape Point we drive through this world famous nature reserve and may even spot wild animals like ostrich, zebra, and antelope Cape Point symbolises the point where cold Benguela Current of the Atlantic Ocean and the warm Agulhas Current of the Indian ocean collide. Cape Point is unspoiled and undeveloped and is an important haven for seabirds and you will enjoy unusual vegetation at Cape Point called Sandstone Fynbos.
