Safety Muizenberg Beach

We have recently returned having been robbed on Muizenberg beach. Approached by 4 youths who threatened us with a gun and knife (could have been fake). Police advised that there is an attack once a day targeted at tourists. Do not walk past the surfing area. The robbers appeared out of the sand hills when there was a gap in people walking along the beach

Any locals want to comment on this e.g. is it generally safe during the day or should we be careful when we visit? Things happen anywhere so is this a particular worry or not?

The area to the east of Muizenburg (Sunrise Circle) is known to be dangerous. That is where the sand hills (dunes) are. Muizenberg beach, with the promenade behind, is safe.

If you are at the beach in Muizenberg you should be ok, because you will loads of youngsters learning to surf and also loads of people up and down. As Gerald suggest that going further down to Sunrise Circle side you have a few dodgy characters creaping around.

All the best!

Me and the wife were robbed at knifepoint on this Saturday. 2 youths appeared out of the dunes and threatened us with knifes then took our wallet and phone. Do not walk to far away from the promenade
