South Africa Visitor Information On the False Bay side, between Muizenberg and Strand, there are no more beaches safe for swimming. The drive along the coast is scenic and the beaches look inviting, but there are dangerously strong undercurrents. Only in the Strand near Somerset West on the other side of False Bay you'll find safe beachs.

Travel Information

Muizenberg lies some 20 minutes from the centre of Cape Town. There is a Metro train from the main station. Despite the many historical buildings, in particular, the impressive the old station building, the centre of Muizenberg and the buildings at the promenade look neglected and a bit shabby. The glamour of this formerly attractive seaside town has faded. However, this is all to change in the near future.

Muizenberg has stunning and very wide beaches with the finest sand, which is ideal for children. The water (Indian Ocean) is a bit warmer than the Atlantic side. A little pleasure resort with waterslide, minigolf and merry-go-round provides entertainment for the younger ones..

Muizenberg has an art museum, the Natale Labia Museum that belongs to the South African National Gallery. It also serves as a cultural centre. It lies on the Main Road at the southern end of town. The Rhodes' Cottage can be found in the vicinity. It used to be a holiday home for the colonialist Sir Cecil Rhodes, who spent his last years here.

At the northern end of Muizenberg lies the Zandvlei Nature Reserve on a lagoon. It is the breeding ground for many bird species and a popular picnic area. The lagoon is good for sailing. The big camping ground of Muizenberg is nicely positioned - one of the few in Cape Town.

Muizenberg has a camping and caravan site as well, one of very few in the Cape Town area: Zandvlei Caravan Park, The Row, Muizenberg 7951, South Africa. Tel (021) 788 5215; Fax 7888109.
