There is a coastal walk from Muizenberg to Kalk Bay that includes the historical mile. This part of the walk features some wonderful historical buildings including the SA Police Museum, Natale Labia, Het Posthuys, which dates back to 1742 and is one of the oldest buildings in South Africa built by the Dutch East India Company as a toll house, and Rhodes Cottage.

Het Posthuys (“the post house”) in Muizenberg - Cape Town. Built in the 1670s, Het Posthuys is the oldest standing building on the False Bay coastline. The Anglo-American Corporation restored the building in the early 1980s and it was reopened as a museum. One of the original floor stones still has a series of boat-shaped grooves caused by an ochre-grinding stone, probably used by the San or Khoi inhabitants of the area.
