Westcliff Steps

 Crescent Drive, Westcliff Johannesburg South Africa     updated 13 Feb 2017
created 19 May 2014

Situated in one of Joburg’s most affluent and most beautiful old suburbs, the Westcliff steps, dubbed the “stairway to heaven” consist of several flights of stone steps (210 in total), popular with joggers and dog walkers alike. When the jacarandas bloom in in Spring (October) the steps become even more popular because you can walk under the purple blooms in the surrounding streets.

The entrance to the steps is situated on Crescent Drive. You can also access the stairs by walking up Wicklow Avenue in Parkview and at the intersection with Westcliff Drive, through a pedestrian gateway. Look out for the blue plaques on walls of the surrounding homes, that mark them out as heritage properties. Once you eventually get to the top, you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful view of Joburg's trees. Cool down over a cappuccino or a freshly pressed juice at Westcliff Deli, at Four Seasons The Westcliff Hotel, which is within walking distance. (Open from 06:00-18:00).
