Noordhoek Beach, Noordhoek

4.5
#7 of 18 in Beaches in Cape Town
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.

  • Beautiful beach at the end of Chapman's peak drive. A car park is located directly on the beach and from there you can walk along the beach to after Kommetjie. Dreamy.

  • Beach with a long strip of sand and less infrastructure, located in the southern region of Cape Town. Quieter than the Central Beaches of the city, near the road Champmans Peak Drive.
