Spreading the Stoke

Through various partners we're using surfing as a tool for change

What are you waiting for!

... come join the vibe!


Howzit! African Soul Surfer is… alot of things!

Sea-view accommodation right on the beach at Muizenberg’s Surfers Corner… with a surf-centric cafe bristling with positive energy… a gallery showcasing our sub-culture’s artists and photographers… a multi-discipline yoga studio… a cinema serving up pop(corn) and cult movies… a meeting place for like-minded souls in a beautiful setting.



We are pretty obsessed with surfing. We'll help you try it with our Surf School, or point you in the right direction if you already know how.



Most rooms have stunning sea views. Watch the sunrise over the surfers and dolphins from your bed!



We love yoga! Either in our studio or on the beach, variety of styles offered.



You are what you eat, and our food and drinks are awesome! No junk, just goodness.

Beautiful rooms

Wide selection of room types, all Doubles & Family rooms have sea-views, some of the dorms too. The Single/Twin rooms have private balconies too!


Plus free light breakfast, free all-day tea/coffee, free pool & ping-pong & free use of beach toys like soccer balls, beach bats, volleyball!

Real Food & Drink

Between our Chef and Barista we deliver quality, healthy fare to keep you powered up to enjoy each and every day. Special coffee, power smoothies, locally sourced produce, served with a smile.

We are the closest backpackers to the beach in South Africa.
