So I'm living in a town/suburb called Muizenberg, which the Cape Town locals describe as "a sleepy little seaside village"--no joke, I've heard the exact same description of this place from at least seven different people. There's not too much going on in Muizenberg during the evenings (which is fine, because I've also been told at least seven times not to go out after dark, lest I get jumped or worse), but it's amazingly scenic. I live a block off the Indian Ocean, and a block off what they call a "vlei" here-- sort of a lake/marsh area, from what I gather. My particular vlei is called Zandvlei. Here's a couple photos of the scenery near my place.
