The lively seaside suburb of Muizenberg recently had a radical facelift, restoring some of its glamour and popularity on the False Bay side of the Cape Peninsula. Attracting the rich and famous in its hey-day, including Agatha Christy who surfed here, it was the trendiest beachfront in Cape Town.
Muizenberg still retains some of its old charm with a quirky fusion of grand Art Deco buildings and brightly painted bathing huts on the beach. Beginner surfers and longboard riders flock to Surfer's Corner for the warmer and gentler waves. The easy conditions make it one of the best places on the globe to learn to surf and there are plenty of surf schools on the beachfront.
Eclectic and eccentric restaurants, cafes, a dinner-theatre, surf shops, boutiques, second-hand shops and a waterslide line the main road and beachfront. Amble on the ‘Historical Mile’ from the Edwardian-style Muizenberg Station to Kalk Bay and see Posthuys, one of the oldest buildings in South Africa, Rhodes Cottage and numerous venerable buildings along the coastline. Stop in for tea at the Natale Labia Museum on the way.
