CAPE TOWN’S BEST KEPT SECRET
The charming 1326 whitewashed homes of Marina da Gama follow the water channels and hug the shorelines of several islands along the eastern edge of the protected and thriving Zandvlei Estuary. It is one of the most successful low-crime, non-gate residential suburbs in Cape Town, stretching about 1km north to south with excellent road access from Prince George’s Drive (M5). Muizenberg’s soft sandy beaches, restaurants and cafés are 1km south, while central Cape Town centre is 25km north – a quick 30 minute drive.
LIVING AMONGST NATURE
Zandvlei is the last working estuary along the False Bay Coastline and combines freshwater from mountain runoff and salt water from the Atlantic Ocean, to create the perfect environment for aquatic breeding, birdlife and recreation. Marina da Gama residents are passionate about their environment, which fuels a strong community spirit of people who value their precious lifestyle, living around this body of water thriving with life and exceptional beauty.
LOOKS LIKE A GREEK VILLAGE
With a housing design manual that allows for architectural creativity within a framework of white painted exteriors, Marina da Gama resembles a Greek island village. But it could only ever be Cape Town because of its unique backdrop of huge granite mountains, whose crystals glow bright in the moonlight.
