Muizenberg Beach Review
Once the fashionable resort of South African high society, this long, sandy beach has, unfortunately, lost much of its glamour and now appeals to families and beginner surfers. Surf shops offering lessons and rental boards and wet suits line the beachfront. A tacky pavilion houses a swimming pool, waterslides, toilets, changing rooms, and snack shops. The beach is lined with colorful bathing boxes of the type once popular at British resorts. Lifeguards are on duty, and the sea is shallow and reasonably safe. Many of the beautiful art-deco beachfront buildings that were fast becoming slums have been renovated into upscale apartments. New restaurants like the popular Knead (and great Sinnful ice-cream shop next door) have opened, and property prices are soaring. If you're keen on stretching your legs, you can walk along the beach or take the picturesque concrete path known as the Catwalk, which connects Muizenberg to St. James.
