Clifton's beaches provide exactly the reason why you should book a holiday stay in the area. These 4 beaches, separated only by naturally situated granite rocks and named 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th beach, are famous for their pristine white sands. Clifton's 1st beach is additionally popular for its big waves, courtesy of the infamous South-Eastern wind, perfect for surfers and other various water sports. 2nd beach, on the other hand, is just the right place to be when you want to have some fun under the sun. 3rd beach has been known to be the oasis for the gay culture while 4th beach is known above all its sister beaches for its environmental safety and tourist standards, which have earned 4th beach Blue Flag status and the honour of National Geographic naming it as the world's second best beach. With a location on the Atlantic Seaboard, the waters off the coast of Clifton's beaches are notoriously icy, making this an ideal setting to enjoy at the height of the summer season.
