Boom! I had a rich experience at the Clifton Beach in Cape Town. Why should you visit this town and not got to Clifton Beach? It has a good view in the day and in the evening. It is a place to relax and chill with friends. Bring your ball along for volleyball or just sit with a book in your hands to read. It is a place to watch out for to just sip in a good amount of sunshine. Do have a great time visiting.
Great place to catch the sun. One off South Africa s top Beaches probably in the world!!! Soft sand open space
