Discover Five Amazing Activities in Muizenberg

Happy weekend! Finally, you have some free time for yourself. Today, you have the chance to explore the city and enjoy the good things in life: music, books, coffee, ice cream, and the beach. Luckily, you don’t need to search far and wide. Head over to the vibrant hub of Muizenberg in False Bay, where an array of exciting experiences await you. Don’t let the chilly weather get you down! Here are five fantastic activities to keep you warm and full of joy.

1. Empire Cafe

When you arrive at Surfer’s Corner, cross the railway line to York Road. Look to your left, and you can’t miss the balcony of Empire Cafe. From there, you’ll have a perfect view of the surfers riding the waves. While the downstairs area is cozy, I always try to grab a table next to the open doors on the balcony. That way, you can enjoy your warm cappuccino and scrambled egg croissant while chatting with your friends without ever taking your eyes off the breathtaking ocean view. Before heading upstairs on the winding staircase, make sure to check out the menu written on the board.

2. Roots Records

Right across from where I’m standing, there’s this super cool record store in my awesome city of Cape Town. They’re all about vinyl records of every genre you can think of. And if you want, they can even turn them into CDs. DJs, this place has all the gear you need, including turntables and stereo equipment. They’ve got the classics and the soulful treasures that will take you back in time. The second you step in here, you’re hit with the coolest vibes and sounds coming from the gramophone. The walls, windows, and shelves are filled with albums, from Elvis to jazz quartets, and they even have books about 1001 songs you need to hear before you kick the bucket. You can sit down on the comfy couch, read up on guitar strumming techniques, or flip through album covers in this rad book from the 1950s and beyond. You’ll definitely learn a thing or two about music and groove along as you explore this ultimate music haven.

3. Empire Bookstore

When you walk past a shop and see a live sausage dog, a red dress, and a furniture store in the display window, you’ll know you’ve reached the second-hand bookstore on the corner. The owner will be there to guide you and help you find what you’re searching for. Take your time as you browse through the different sections of books, such as travel (which is always my favorite), drama, romance, thrillers, and anything else that catches your interest and makes you want to curl up with a blanket. Don’t forget to bring some money with you because the prices are incredibly affordable.

4. Sinful Ice Cream Parlor

What if it’s cold outside and you’re bundled up in boots and a cozy sweater? Well, here’s some surprising news: ice cream tastes even better when there’s a chance of rain! Head over to surfer’s corner and keep walking until you reach a delightful ice cream shop. They have a wide range of flavors that will make your mouth water, making it hard to decide which one to choose. You can never go wrong with classics like peppermint, Addictions, or Oreo. But if you’re looking for something truly refreshing, try their mango or litchi sorbet on a sugar cone. And the best part? You can get a huge scoop in a cone for just R11! At Sinful, every decision is a good one, so resist the temptation to try three different flavors and trust me, you won’t regret your choice.

5. Take a Walk on Muizenberg Beach

Now, I understand that some people might think of the beach as just a place for surfing. But I find great joy in the simple act of taking a long walk on the sandy shores. So grab your ice cream and start strolling past the dog walkers, stand-up paddleboarders, and surfers. You’ll also see little ones in adorable wetsuits and the colorful changing rooms. Whether you’re alone or with company, walking on the beach is a fantastic way to relax your mind, get your blood flowing, and let your thoughts wander. There’s something magical about a never-ending expanse of white sand, the waves crashing gently, and the carefree beach dwellers that will uplift your spirits and fill you with inspiration. Spending a day at the beach can rejuvenate your soul and give you a fresh perspective on life, even if just for a little while.
