Sea, mountains, history, culture, food: live your best life in Muizenberg!
Those who are fortunate enough to live in Wavescapes will enjoy all the advantages of staying in the historic heart of Muizenberg, combined with the benefits of occupying a brand new, well-designed, well-constructed building.
With no maintenance issues, and all the mod cons of today’s technology, residents will be able to concentrate on enjoying the rich leisure time and healthy outdoor recreation that this seaside location has to offer in such abundance.
Naturally, the proximity to the sea, and specifically to one of Cape Town’s most popular swimming and surfing spots, tops the list of Wavescapes’ lifestyle advantages. To stroll down onto the sand of Surfers Corner for a reviving dip or a soul-satisfying surf session is something most people can only hope to enjoy on a few precious days of holiday a year.
And for anyone who has been bitten by the surf bug, to be able to take advantage of the best wave conditions as and when they occur, to be able to respond – without delay, without driving, without parking – to the summons of the sea is a rare and precious gift.
Of course, there are many other benefits this beautiful stretch of coastline has to offer: a long walk or run along the sand of Sunrise Beach is a great way to stay in shape. And for variety, the boardwalk from Muizenberg to Kalk Bay is a wonderful option, with a dip in the Dalebrook Tidal Pool to refresh you along the way.
For some, the call of the ocean beckons them beneath the waves, into the incredible kelp forests along the False Bay shore, snorkelling or scuba-diving into the intense beauty and silence of another world. For others, the reward is an intense upper-body workout in a kayak or a paddle-ski, or a stand-up paddle behind the breakers.
But for residents of Wavescapes, the enjoyment of the natural world is not limited to the sea. The Muizenberg Mountains that rise up behind the development offer breathtaking hikes on fynbos-clad slopes, with some excellent mountain-biking tracks close by. And then of course there’s golf – with three good courses within a fifteen-minute drive to choose from.
Naturally, there are other benefits that Wavescapes’ location has to offer, such as convenient pedestrian access to the culture of the False Bay coastline: the restaurants, the museums, and the eclectic flea markets that line the Main Road from Muizenberg to Kalk Bay.
And for foodies, the immediate vicinity offers a wide and delectable menu of restaurants to choose from, ranging from good old fish and chips in Kalk Bay Harbour to the fine dining in the Casa Labia, a landmark museum and exquisite restaurant just 50 metres away from Wavescapes.
All these and the many other pavements cafés and artisanal eateries around Surfers Corner and along the Main Road form part of the inimitable blend of nature and culture that make this part of the Cape coastline unique – and uniquely appealing.
