Beautiful beaches, quaint shops, trendy eateries and a relaxed pace of life that makes every day feel like a holiday…

If that's your idea of a great life, the dream could be within reach in Cape Town's False Bay.

The coastal area stretching from Muizenberg to Simons Town has plenty to offer - especially if you love the sea. Let's take a look at this charming area where properties are still readily available below the R3 million mark. 

Make your holiday last forever

Life in False Bay is perfect for those of us who like to take things a bit easier. 

False Bay is one of the Cape Peninsula’s best kept secrets. With properties walking distance from the beach, restaurants, and quant shops, and homes in the house, townhouse, and apartment categories still within reach for South African buyers with a good income, False Bay living is a sought after and affordable coastal location.

Here are some of the great amenities you can enjoy in the deep South of coastal Cape Town

  • The area is home to several blue flag beaches as well as the False Bay Yacht Club which is a blue flag marina. 

  • Swimming, surfing, golf and sailing enthusiasts will feel right at home in this genteel coastal setting. 

  • The main road from Muizenberg to Simons Town is lined with trendy eateries and quaint boutique-styled shops and for those that love antiques and art, this scenic coastal road is treasure trove. 

A selection of great places to live

False Bay is home to many scenic towns, each offering unique attractions to prospective buyers. 

  • Muizenberg is a safe, beautiful town known for its water sports and surf culture. 

  • Fish Hoek is one of the most beautiful towns on the southern coast of Cape Town with quick access to the sea 

  • Simons Town is a charming historical settlement with beautiful vintage homes, a scenic marina and the famous Boulders beach which is home to a colony of African penguins. 

An excellent property investment

Lifestyle and scenic surroundings aside, investing in a False Bay, Cape Town realty is equally attractive from a financial point of view. 

  • The FNB property barometer shows five-year growth in property values of 61.7% for the area while a home purchased 15 years ago now sells for a whopping 411% of its original price.

  • Prices are still extremely reasonable, with many smaller homes priced at under R2.5 million and some apartments on the market at R1.8 million or less.
