Quick Cape Town Fact: Between 1880 and 1930 Muizenberg transformed itself from a ramshackle collection of shacks and farmhouses into the top holiday resort in South Africa. It grew so much in popularity that a wooden beach pavilion had to be built to provide changing room accommodation for the hundreds of holidaymakers. This pavilion was demolished in 1929 to make way for a new pavilion which included a theatre and tea-room. In 1913 nearly 100 small bathing huts lined the beach front but overtime some got into disrepair and were demolished. Today you can still find two rows of colourful bathing huts and such is their popularity that they even get used for the backdrop of fashion shoots.
