The white houses of Marina da Gama are reminiscent of a Greek village.

Marina da Gama is built on the eastern banks of the quiet Zandvlei Lake and interlaced by waterways to walk, row or paddle around. The lake is salt water and opens up to the ocean at Muizenberg.

There are shopping centres just across the road and the beaches of Muizenberg are very close by, providing some of the safest bathing in Cape Town.

Its a stunning place to walk around or just sit buy the lake and enjoy the views.

Fun can always be found in Muizenberg at the beach or various bars and restaurants.

Kalk Bay is only a short drive away, where you can sample one of its many restaurants, trawl the antique and bookshops or buy fish at the harbour.
