Cape Town – The Must-See Wonder of South Africa
Clifton Beach, which falls under the Atlantic Seaboard, is one of Cape Town’s most famous beaches because of its pearl white sand and crystal clear blue water. Its only downfall is the ice-cold water, which we can blame on the Benguela current, so unless you are a fan of losing the feeling in your toes, legs, arms, and eventually your entire body, the water off the surrounding beaches is best left being admired from a distance. Hey, if you’re lucky, you might see some marine life while staring out towards the edge of the earth.
This area is also home to some of the country’s most expensive properties, and it is a known fact that Camps Bay, which is a stone’s throw away from Clifton, has the highest concentration of multimillionaires. So if you are looking to spot the latest Aston Martin, a mansion made entirely of glass, or hear the most expensive champagne bottle’s popping, take a drive along Victoria Road and then grab a seat in one of the many restaurants or bars lined up along the Camps Bay strip. Property investors just love this area because of the houses that are up for grabs.
Cape Aghulas is definitely a point of interest, as it is the spot marked as where the two oceans – the Atlantic and the Indian – meet and the most southern tip of Africa. Visitors can take a short walk out towards the lighthouse, which is the second oldest in South Africa.
