Town (Afrikaans: Kaapstad, Xhosa: iKapa) is the third most populous
city in South Africa, forming part of the metropolitan municipality of
the City of Cape Town. It is the provincial capital of the Western Cape,
as well as the legislative capital of South Africa, where the National
Parliament and many government offices are located. Cape Town is famous
for its harbour as well as its natural setting in the Cape floral kingdom,
including such well-known landmarks as Table Mountain and Cape Point. Often
regarded as one of the world's most beautiful cities because of its geography,
Cape Town is the most popular South African destination for tourism.
Town originally developed as a victualling station for Dutch ships sailing
to Eastern Africa, India, and Asia more than 200 years before the advent
of the Suez Canal in 1869. Jan van Riebeeck's arrival on 6 April 1652 established
the first permanent European settlement in sub-Saharan Africa. Cape Town
quickly outgrew its original purpose as the first European outpost at the
Castle of Good Hope. It was the largest city in South Africa until the
growth of Johannesburg and Durban. Cape Town is town twinned with
Nice in France.

Atlantic Seaboard South, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa. Clifton is an affluent suburb
of Cape Town, South Africa. It is an exclusive residential area and is
home to some of the most expensive real estate in South Africa, with dwellings
nestled on cliffs that have sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean.
area has a set of 4 beaches which are frequently used destinations for
both locals and tourists. The beaches, which are named from 1st to 4th,
are separated by falls of granite boulders and have almost pure white granitic
sand. The four beaches of Clifton are well protected from the notorious
south-easterly wind. A fifth beach, before First Beach, called Moses, appears
and disappears as the sand is washed in and out with the seasons. The water,
although chilly (12–16 °C), plays host to many watersports, mostly
surfing, both board and body. The strongest surf is at First, diminishing
to Fourth, where it is the weakest. Fourth beach (to the South),is the
most populated and glamorous venue. Yachts anchor off Fourth beach, especially
on summer weekends. Second beach attracts gay men. Third is the beach to
which families and beach volleyball players gravitate. First beach, to
the north, the largest beach, draws a mixed crowd. Clifton Beach was noted
as one of Discovery.com's best beaches by region.
Clifton 4th beach has also
been awarded the Blue Flag award in recognition of its environmental, safety
and tourist standards.
The small size of the properties
on which bungalows are built above first and second beaches is attributable
to the fact that the area was laid out by the City of Cape Town for returning
soldiers who had fought in World War I. Narrow flights of stairs run between
Victoria Road and the various beaches. These houses now fetch very high
prices on the housing market, despite being only able to be reached by
stairs, and, in some cases, having no garaging.
Clifton was rated as one
of the Top Ten Beaches by the satellite television network Discovery Travel
Channel in 2003 and 2004 and has received Blue Flag status. In 2005 and
2006 it was rated by Forbes.com at number 8 in the Top 10 Topless beaches
in the World.
