#Water Body, #Beach, #Must See
Experience one of the wildest and windiest parts of the Atlantic Cape at Noordhoek Beach, a large, and largely unspoiled coastal area. The sandy beach runs 8 km (4.9 mi) along the coast, bracketed by the vast sea and swathes of protected wetlands. Popular with horseback-riders and surfboarders, rather than sunbathers and swimmers, the beach's untamed ambience includes an old lighthouse and onshore shipwreck. Take the coastal road that looks over the beach to gain extensive views of the waves crashing down and the sands blowing into the wetlands behind.
