Surfers Corner Beach, Muizenberg, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa


Surfer’s Corner is considered the birthplace of surfing in South Africa. Legend has it that a visiting Australian showed the locals how it was done around 1910. Before long, collisions with swimmers necessitated a separate area demarcated for surfers, and what was formerly known as Neptune’s Corner naturally became Surfer’s Corner. It is still the place to learn to surf, and there are a number of surf schools catering for both young ‘grommets’ and late starters.

The shark-spotting initiative, started here in October 2004, has since been expanded to other beaches by the City of Cape Town.
