Muizenberg Beach: endless shores, keep walking.

Grains of sand between my toes; small waves ever changing on the shoreline. Thousands of crushed shells; tiny washed up houses that sea creatures once knew.

Get your toes dirty

You don’t have to be a classic romantic to enjoy long walks on the beach. In fact, when it comes to walking along Muizenberg beach; you don’t have to have any pre-set ideas as to who you’re trying to be or what you’re going to achieve out of life subsequent to this sandy experience.

So what makes Muizenberg (Cape Town, South Africa) a beach walk that is different from the rest? Once you get there, look around you . . .

The pencilled in mountains that lie one hundred kilometres in the distance, or closer mountains that rise into the sky, decorated by the colourful Victorian beach-houses below. The shadow that the sun casts over the sand as it gradually finds its way into the sea.
