Clifton Beaches information
Giant granite boulders break up the four beaches at Clifton, all accessible by steps from Victoria Rd. As they're almost always sheltered from the wind, they offer top sunbathing spots. Vendors hawk drinks and ice creams along the beach and sun loungers and shades are available. However, there are no public toilets.
The most northern and longest of the beaches are Clifton 1st and 2nd . Clifton 3rd is the gay beach, though plenty of straight folk frequent it, too, while Clifton 4th is popular with families. Before hopping in the sea, remember that the water comes straight from the Antarctic, so swimming here is exhilarating (ie freezing).
