Muizenberg is a beach-side suburb of Cape Town. It is situated where the shore of the Cape Peninsula makes a round curve to the east on the False Bay coast. The area buzzes with activities during the peak season, with crowds of holiday-makers in the streets.
Though Muizenberg may be short of the bright ocean water and impressive boulders, it is warmer to swim here than any of the beaches on the Atlantic side and thus it is very kids-friendly.
Muizenberg is where surfing started in South Africa and it is proudly home to a surfing community. Despite the waves are not so huge, this is a good spot for long boarding and perfect for absolute beginners.
The retro and unique feel about the beach with colourful Victorian bathing boxes offers visitors perfect photo opportunities! Step back in time and revive the time when Muizenberg was Cape Town's premier swimming beach! A Blue Flag beach, it tops the list for safety, recreational activities and eco-consciousness. Do not worry about the White Sharks! Muizenberg signals alerts if ever sharks are spotted.
There are many restaurants and coffee shops located along the main beach, offering excellent customer services. The beach front complex offers recreational facilities such as water-slides, a swimming pool and Putt-Putt, all to entertain the kids. Take a 30-minute walk to the neighbouring St James. St James has fun tourist attractions and some great places to grab a bite.
