Misty Cliffs Information
Misty Cliffs, a small village that sits on the beach and mountain, separated by only the Main Road. It is between Scarborough and Kommetjie, about one hour drive from Cape Town CBD. Misty Cliffs got its name for its misty cliffs – it looks out on the wild and rough sea, and is known not only for wonderful beaches and beautiful views but in addition for wet and blustery days, depending upon the season. Misty Cliffs is a charming small village which is also a conservation village that borders on a nature reserve, a terrific spot to discover quiet and peace as well as a magnificent setting in the best of days.
The beach isn’t too large, but wonderful for walks, and actually close to the far more admired and bigger Scarborough beach, which is very popular with surfers. During peak season it may be a little busy, but nothing like the really trendy Cape Town beaches such as Camps Bay and Clifton on the Atlantic Seaboard. And every day when visitors have left, the village of Misty Cliffs once again returns to its natural part of serenity and tranquillity
In a nutshell, it’s among the several villages remaining in Cape Town which has managed to keep its original natural quality. Despite being half an hour or so away, Capetonians are known to purchase seaside holiday houses here. Misty Cliffs remains uncommercial, with no restaurant or stores and you might have to drive to Long Beach Mall and Sun Valley within the peninsula to do your shopping, though you can eat in Scarborough in the family run Camel Rock. Not that it stops the locals, who would not dream of trading spots and love their home – it is a little price to pay.
