Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Clifton Beach, South Africa, Your Home Away From Home

Clifton Beach is a popular seafront, in the affluent suburb of Clifton, in the west of Cape Town, South Africa. The stunning beaches of the coves here make it a much sought-after location. Understandably, it is home to many superbly fitted holiday apartments and flats, for those looking for self catering rental accommodation. Cape Town itself is the second most populated city in the country and is the capital of the Western Cape. It lies beneath the world-famous Table Mountain, which rears dramatically above the Atlantic seaboard, providing a wonderful back-drop to this cosmopolitan city.

Things to Do on Holiday in Clifton Beach, South Africa

The focus of attention, for most visitors to this part of Cape Town, is inevitably the sea. There are four beaches here, where the sands are a glimmering white and which are well sheltered by small coves – this means the strong south-easterly wind fails to bite. Each of the four beaches are suited for different activities, which range from surfing, to volleyball, to sunbathing, to simply strolling, to see and be seen. Off of the beach, Cape Town has much to offer the visitor - a vibrant night scene, fantastic shopping opportunities and theme parks for the kids. It is also a great place for extreme sports fans: deep sea fishing, abseiling, scuba diving and caving are all great fun activities to be found on your holidays in Clifton Beach.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Clifton Beach, South Africa

A must-see for any traveller to Clifton Beach is Table Mountain itself. This is probably one of South Africa's most famous landmarks and dominates the skyline from just about any point in Cape Town. You can get up close to the mountain by taking the Cableway and enjoy the spectacular views from its 1000m height. Another natural wonder to be taken in, on your holidays in Clifton Beach, are the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. These are classed as one of the finest in the world - it is home to more than 8500 indigenous plants and some lovely picnic trails. Many visitors are also keen to see Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned - this is now an historic landmark to the triumph of a just civil society over the injustices of apartheid.

We were visiting in July so it was unfortunately too cold to enjoy the rooftop deck but it has a beautiful view of Table Mountain. The owners were very responsive when booking our stay and the housing manager was very flexible with our check-in and check-out times. I highly recommend this home for a family who is looking to explore Cape Town!

The views are magnificent, certainly could not be better. Needless to say The sunsets on the balcony accompanied by sundowners and a fish Braai is nothing less than magical. Can't wait to return.
