Muizenberg Beach is a popular 200 m sandy shoreline with appoximately 200 parking bays available. Muizenberg has been a popular destination for beachgoers for hundreds of years. Many visitors spend the summer months in the Muizenberg area and one can still see the characteristic and colourful beach changing booths that have appeared in many photographs over the years.
Muizenberg Beach is popular with families as the nearby Muizenberg Pavilion offers a water slide, outdoor swimming pool and putt-putt (mini-golf) course. A walk along the seafront walkway (Muizenberg to St James) offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy the shoreline, rock pools and engage in some whale watching (June to November).
There are numerous restaurants and interesting shops in the back beach area, as well as local beach vendors who sell a variety of snacks, cold drinks, fast food and ice-creams. Surfers’ Corner, at the end of the beach, is an excellent spot for novice or beginner surfers, and the area offers a number of local surf shops that hire out boards and offer lessons.
