Muizenberg & Kalk Bay Area Guide

Muizenberg & Kalk Bay Overview

Muizenberg was once an elegant seaside town, but became run down in the last decade or so. There has been a revival over the last few years though and now there are excellent areas along the sea front and beach front. There is some interesting old architecture on the main road through to Kalk Bay. The beach is popular with surfers.

Kalk Bay and St James are charming villages situated on the hill between Main Rd and Boyes Drive, overlooking False Bay. There are a number of delightful delicatessens, antique shops, shops selling bric a brac, restaurants, art and bookshops here.

Unmissable is Polana bar/restaurant in the Kalk Bay harbour, with its windows that open right out onto the sea.
