Muizenberg Beach Walk

The walkway begins at Surfer’s corner at Muizenberg Beach which is considered to be the birthplace of surfing in South Africa and is currently home to a surfing community.
We follow the long concrete sidewalk that borders the sea and winds along the coast to St James Beach –( At certain times of day, month and year, the tide and surf prevent access to the coastal path and instead you walk along Main Road to St James Beach). Stop off by the famous Victorian bathing huts for a short rest and opportunity to swim and take photos. From St. James beach there is no paved walkway. Continue on to Kalk Bay across Danger beach with its rock pools at low tide. Once across the beach there is some bouldering to be done, a few rocks to climb and you walk alongside the railway line, take the exit through the tunnel which leads you onto the start of Kalk Bay Main Road. (If you do not want to do the bouldering we can exit to Main Road at St James).
Opportunity to visit numerous boutiques, crafts markets, antiques, galleries and shops. Walk along the pier of Kalk Bay Harbour see colourful fishing vessels, Cape Fur seals, seabirds and the local fish market. When your feet get tired we pop in at one of the many excellent restaurants to take a break and enjoy the incredible atmosphere. Go back to Muizenberg by train or follow the same route back.
