Buitenverwachting - Muizenberg


09h35 You’ll eventually arrive at the end of the M3 where you need to turn RIGHT onto the M42 direction Muizenberg.

09h40 At the traffic lights, turn RIGHT again on the M4 direction Muizenberg.

09h55 On your way down the M4, you’ll pass the Marina da Gama estate on the other side of Zandvlei. All the houses on the estate have water frontage and half of Zandvlei is a boating lake, the other a bird sanctuary. It’s a truly wonderful place to live!

10h00 You’ll now arrive in Muizenberg: you can now either keep going straight on or turn LEFT into Muizenberg itself.

Parker Cottage Guesthouse recommends visiting 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.
