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.

You cannot miss Muizenberg on your trip to Cape Town. A stunning beach, with warm waters that run shallow until you are far out. A great place for lunch and a beautiful day on the beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas are rentable

Muizenberg beach is in my opinion the perfect spot if you want to learn how to surf. The conditions were simply perfect during my stay. We got continuously good sets of waves. After 20 minutes I took my first wave and I can tell you it was a good feeling :-) Therefor I can highly recommend Gary's Surf School. Gary... More

Muizenburg is an absolutely stunning beach that is easy to access and great for a day relaxing in the sunshine. Just beware of the sharks...!

Muizenberg, once a bustling beach suburb, lapsed for many years into dormancy, now though, it is rediscovering itself and is once more a vibrant place. The beach is extensive and the sea warmer than most Cape Town beaches. Surfer's Corner lies on the mountain side of the beach and is an ideal place to learn to surf and bodyboard. The... More

I loved the experience of being able to take the train from Cape Town to Muizenberg. After the train labors through the city, you suddenly get a dramatic view of the ocean from your train window!! You can also walk from Muizenberg to Kalk bay by the beach. If you walk up the hill facing Muizenberg beach, you get a... More

Muizenberg beach is obviously known for the wonderfully inviting waves, and the brilliant shark spotters who help mitigate the danger facing swimmers and surfers. But just as much as Muizenberg is a great place to surf for the day, there are some great bars and restaurants, especially as you head over to the kalk bay side.
