Whether you want to ride some waves, visit a museum or entertain your little ones – Muizenberg’s got your covered.
Het Posthuys and Rhodes Cottage Museum
Why you should visit: For the history enthusiasts, Muizenberg offers two historical sites in the form of the Het Posthuys and the Rhodes Cottage Museum. Het Posthuys is believed to be the second oldest building in the Cape, first being recorded on a map in 1687, and served as a lookout post for enemies entering False Bay. The Rhodes Cottage was purchased by Cecil John Rhodes in 1899 and is the place where he died in 1902. The cottage was preserved and opened up as a museum in 1953, commemorating the life of Rhodes.
How much does it cost: Admission to both museums are free but donations are always welcome.
Surf at Muizenberg Beach
Why you should experience it: Muizenberg beach is considered one of the premiere spots for surfing in Cape Town. With warmer waters and waves that are big enough for pros and small enough for those just starting out, it’s a popular spot in the surfing community.

Muizenberg Water Slides
