Muizenberg Beach

posted in: Photography, Travel | 8

We’ve been having bouts of cold, wet weather so when the sun decided to play nice, I jumped at the opportunity of soaking up a bit of warmth at the beach.

IMG_2074Muizenberg Beach is a fantastic option for a family day out, or just to spend time with your partner. There are fun activities such as putt-putt, child-friendly pools and long, winding slides that made me nostalgic just looking at them. One of the attractions at this Indian Ocean beach are the multi-coloured change rooms or “huts” along the beach.

IMG_2072Parking was full but not everybody chilled at the beach, leaving ample space for a relaxing walk along the warm sand. The only busy corner was the surfers spot on the far right. There’s a line of restaurants conveniently facing the sea in old-fashioned buildings. Unfortunately, none of them looked halal. Sirocco was closed, but do keep an eye out if you’re around – perhaps they were closed because it was a Sunday.

  4. If I’m ever in South Africa I’ll have to go to Muizenberg Beach. What I really want to see are African penguins before they go extinct.
