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.

This place is really nice, not the best pace to swim but if you just starting out its a god place to rent some boards and hit the water

Was expecting rows of beautifully bright coloured beach huts. There were only a handful. Very disappointing. However the beach area was clean, the surrounding views were good and the little shops across from the beach were really lovely. Interesting facts about sharks painted on wall....More

It is same as the other beach but the most lovely part is its changing rooms.They look damn cool with different colors. We took too many photos in front of these rooms.

This is the space where everyone takes out their cameras to snap pictures of the colourful huts as the back drop. If you enjoy the sun, sand and the waves this is the place to be.

My nephews surfed here (after leaving another more challenging beach the day before). As beginners, they felt comfortable with the facilities here (shops for renting their gear - wet suits and boards) and the general layout of the beach. They had a wonderful experience!

that place got it all - long-stretch white sandy beach, terrific scenery and even during "winter" it's warm enough to walk barefooted. Lot's of nearby food joints offering great food if you wnat to stay longer.

Lots to see and great white beach. Little restaurants to eat at in close proximity. family outings here is a must.

would highly recommend staying in Muizenberg for a day as it carries a different vibe from the rest of Cape Town, especially if you are into laid-back holidays. Explore the tidal beaches and relax in any one of the restaurants which line the beachside..
