About Us


Started in 2020, the Beach Hut Trust was formed as a collaboration between private residents, local businesses and city representatives to establish a group to look after the Beach Huts in Muizenberg and surrounds that have been falling into disrepair for some time.

The trust aims to create social and economic opportunity for the local community through the Save Our Beach Hut campaign and restore and maintain these iconic structures for many years to come.

Help us to protect Cape Town's most iconic structures.

We are partnering with local businesses to create merchandise inspired by Cape Town's most iconic structures. The Beach Huts.

We hope to inspire local traders and craftsmen to adopt the image and make it part of their work. The more it is used, the better the chances of saving them.

Proceeds of the sale of these products go towards supporting the Save Our Beach Hut campaign.

Well done to Solomons An Sons Builder who are nearly finished painting the doors on the first 5 huts.

Thank you Energade for stepping up your game and creating refreshing drinks in #saveourbeachhuts colours! Helped our painters keep hydrated and cool!

Spare a thought today for our team of painters from Solomons An Sons Builder who are painting the doors IN THIS HEAT!!

If you are on the beach, go chat to them, they would love a friendly face. And if you need any painting job - these dedicated guys are the best!

Where would we be without Leith Roofing (Pty) Ltd who are so much more than a roofing company!

Thank you so much Andrew Gilbey for your dedication to our campaign. And thanks to your team of Faiez, Ameer, Nashrief and Bakaar who primed and hung the doors that Swartland Group donated and ...fitted the all important locks from BUCO Claremont.

Thank you Greg and John from BUCO Claremont for the hinges and barrel bolts to secure the newly hung doors. BUCO South Africa have been wonderful in their support of our campaign to #saveourbeachhuts on Muizenberg Beach.
