Though the beach is still popular, the elegant splendor that once graced this seaside resort community barely shows through the paved-over streets, fast-food eateries and shopping centers.

A beach-side suburb of Cape Town. Lovely place to go for a walk. The colorful huts were fascinating to look at.

I love this place. Loads to do from free historic walking tours to surfing to dining out to wandering along the coast to Kalk bay... Never a dull moment.

This place is fantastic for learning to surf and there are Shark Spotters on the beach during the day, that will look out for sharks whilst you are in the water. Great vibe, and nice little restaurants and shops on the beach front.

Best bathing ever and after 22 years of being away loved this new vibe and atmosphere in Muizenburg. After swim had a shower at the surf shop and they even look after your goods. Great food across the road at Mantra Café which apparently is new.
