The coastal walkway between Muizenberg and St James is one of the most popular and scenic walkways in Cape Town.
No matter the season, locals and tourists stroll along this path, which adds to the coastal towns' sense of place.
Due to a combination of wave action, rust and vandalism over the last few years, the safety railings along the length of the walkway were lost.
