After a fulfilling meal, we continue on our adventure towards The “colorful house” of Cape Town. The sight of locals actually bought me more joy as there aren’t any tourist on the beach.
There are locals chilling by the houses, with their picnic mats on the ground, while they sat and have all corners held by random objects which acted as a weight. Children sprawl across the sandy area, while some of them climbed on the beach rocks barefooted. I enjoyed the quiet side of the beach, as walking down brings me to the less beaten path across the coast.
The houses are actually empty rest huts for the people to rest, and it is actually pretty useful to hide from the winds and the sun’s sting. We only got to know that the tourist area is actually the Muizenberg beach, which is also often visited by the locals as well, but it’s more crowded due to the number of tourists. It’s much less touristic than the Muizenberg beach, however, the beauty is still as unrivaled.
We spent the afternoon walking down, talking in the amazing view and the unique housing and architecture that remotely resembles Santorini. I don’t feel any regrets even though we missed out on Muizenburg, as this place is a lot quieter compared to Muizenburg, which is nearer/within The Central area of the “town”.
