After a drive through the heart of Cape Town, we were driven along the coast (literally on cliffs towering over the ocean on double decker buses, I was a bit nervous) to Clifton. Clifton is an absolutely beautiful beach. The blues in the water are so intense the pictures just don’t do them justice. Clifton is split into 4 smaller beaches catering to different interests, such as Clifton 4 is primarily for surfers and Clifton 2 is for the nudists (the only nude beach in Cape Town).
After Clifton we headed to Boulder’s Bay, the general hangout for the penguin population in the South Africa. Penguins everywhere. I still don’t understand why they are here, but they are adorable and I will never be disappointed to see them waddle around in the sand.
Straight from Ocean View we headed to the Cape of Good Hope. After driving pretty much through un-touched land, we reached cliffs reaching out into the ocean. To the east lay the Indian Ocean and to the west the Atlantic Ocean and the Americas. It was a pretty intense hike up to the sole lighthouse in the area, but the views were incredible. From the lighthouse we hiked to the Cape of Good Hope and I literally felt like I was at the edge of the world.
