This little story was sent to me by somebody who wished not to be named:

Hi there,
You asked for something about this area..Muizenberg...obvis. being the area I would write about, seeing as I am passionate about it...
I found this small broachure about the area and I have re worded it a bit so we are not sued for plagerism...but lets not mention any names. Just incase.

Muizenberg/sandvlei sanctuary/lakeside/st james./Cape Point/Simonstown.

The climate of this side of Table Mountain is marked by a lack of extremes, with the warm waters of False Bay being of moderate temperature. Less winter rain is experienced than anywhere else on the Cape Peninsula. Spring is a green magical season with wild flowers on the mountain slopes, with summer being dry and the sea warmer.

Waves here are 10 degrees warmer than the water on the Atlantic side.
Mirror Glass quiet reflections on the sea in the morning are enough to take your breath away, truly a miricle of nature.

Discover the scenery, history and vibrant culture of this special spot on the False Bay coast.

Set amongst tranquil mountains and quiet lakes, connected by road and rail, , this area is only 25 to 40 minutes away from Cape Town (depending on traffic)

The historic mile between Muizenberg and St James has been part of the main thoroughfare to Simonstown ever since 1742.
Things going on in False Bay:

Such a variety of architectural designs and the history of these residences make for a wonderful tour along the seaside walkway.

Rhodes Cottage, the Muizenberg Railway Station and the Natalie Labia Museum are just some of the historic buildings well worth a visit.

People from all corners of the world come here to whale watch and study the creatures as they lie for hours sunning themselves floating on the waves right near the surfers…each conscious of the other (the whales, that is…!).

The beach is miles long, stretching all along the false bay, between St James and the Strand…dotted with old -world wooden bathing huts painted in bright colors.

Truly a place to visit…a paint brush stroke of golden beach; lakes, mountains and the warm Ocean offer a large variety of outdoor activities including surfing, canoeing, hiking, game fishing, bird and whale watching and much more.
