Buitenverwachting - Muizenberg
Named after the original postholder (there used to be a toll at Muizenberg for farmers selling their goods to ships moored in Simonstown), Muizenberg is now a not-very-pretty (from an architectural point of view) surfing town. It boasts one architectural oddity: the house where Cecil John Rhodes died in 1902, now a museum called Het Posthuys.
Muizenberg beach is a long flat beach which has great opportunities for surfing if you’re a beginner (hire boards and wetsuits here and have a beer afterwards) and also for kite and windsurfing (you can get lessons here but book first). The beach is cosmopolitan in flavour with all races and creeds soaking up a bit of sun, so go and join them!
Don’t miss: A show at The Masque Theatre, if you can catch one. It’s very small and local and a little amateurish at times but great fun.
