Muizenberg – A Surfers Paradise

Here are a few of the photos I took at Muizenberg last week.

The people and cultures on this popular South African beach present quite a contrast to the heydays of the Litvaks, who were here in the 40s, 50s and 60s and then left!

Here is a short video clip:


On my last day in Cape Town, I arrived in time to see the sunrise. I enjoyed the walk to St James and back. These photos will appear in a later post.

  1. Although much of the original beach cabins that once lined the entire ocean front where two rows formed a barrier against the relentless afternoon were demolished its nice to see those that were preserved. They have become an icon of South Africa and appear on many sites. What a different demographic to the old days of the 1950’s through the 1980’s. I have many many well preserved photos of my Mom with her many firiends who spent their youth at Habonim Camp in Muizenberg.

    I would be happy to donate these to the Musenberg Historical Society, rsther than allowing them to go into the tradh after I am gone.

    Hope to hear from you.

    1. Hi Linda
      If they are Jewish in nature, I suggest you send them rather to the Kaplan Centre at UCT. I can give you the contacts.
      In the meantime, you please email them to me as I am happy to include them on the Muizenberg KehilaLink where they will be seen!
