Giant granite boulders split the four linked beaches at Clifton, accessible by steps from Victoria Rd. Almost always sheltered from the wind, these beaches are top sunbathing spots. No 3 is the gay beach, though plenty of straights frequent it, too, and No 4 is popular with families. Vendors hawk drinks and ice creams along the beach, and at No 3 there’s usually a massage tent set up. Before hopping in the sea, remember the water comes straight from the Antarctic and swimming here is exhilarating (ie freezing).
