Noordhoek Beach stretches on for 8 beautiful kilometres in the suburb of Noordhoek, Cape Town. As you head over Chapman’s Peak, you will be welcomed by the picturesque shoreline below that meanders towards Kommetjie in the not so far distance.

The great thing about this beach is that it is large and never feels crowded, so you’re ensured a leisurely day in the sun while on a trained horse - the beach is also a popular spot for surfing, kite surfing, windsurfing, sun tanning, dog walking.

Noordhoek is situated below the Southern Slopes of Chapman’s Peak Drive and is Cape Town’s rural treasure with a farm atmosphere. It is famed for its long white sandy beach, ideal for horse riding on the beach for a close up natural experience.
