Noordhoek and the surrounding area
For those that have not visited Noordhoek before, it is situated on the western coast of the Cape Peninsula, approximately 15km south of Cape Town at the foot of the magical Chapman’s Peak.
There are a host of other websites that better do justice in describing the beauty of the surrounding area and the range of activities that are available to choose from. Indeed, it would probably be easier to list what is not available, Skiing being top of mind. Nether the less, the following are well worth highlighting.
Long Beach: Over 8 Km’s of unspoiled beach stretches out from Chapmans Peak to Kommetjie lighthouse. The closest and easiest access to the beach from Lake Michelle is a short drive away. Once on the beach, walking, surfing, kitesurfing and horse riding are all popular activities.
Noordhoek Village: Noordhoek Village offers a range of art and craft shops, excellent restaurants like the Foodbarn, bakeries and other activities. With the village feel and children’s play areas, I doubt you’ll only end up visiting once.
Cycling: Whatever your standard, there are a range of on and off road cycling options available. South Africans spend more per person on cycling than any other country in the world and once you have been over Chapman’s Peak or traversed Cape Point National Park you’ll understand why.
