Noordhoek Beach horse riding
Noordhoek is popular for horse rides along a white, sandy beach that stretches for miles.
There’s nothing quite like cantering on the beach, wind in your hair, surrounded by postcard-perfect views of Chapman’s Peak and the ocean waves crashing just metres away.
Noordhoek is one of the Cape’s most spectacular beaches, stretching from the base of Chapman’s Peak to Kommetjie. Pristine is the word that comes to mind, and the area is great for walks, bird watching and of course, horse riding.
Many of the residents of Noordhoek have their own stables. For visitors, there are a number of places where you can book your place on trails through the wetlands and along the beach.
There are also riding schools in the area, for first-timers and for those who want to hone their skills.

Picture this ... You’re strapped into your seat, hanging under the track of a looping roller coaster that’s hurtling down a twisting track at about 100km/h. Screams fill the air, and you’re not sure you’ll live to savour the memories ... If that sounds like fun to you, then Ratanga Junction’s the place you need to be!

It has long been a human dream to soar like a bird on lofty thermals – and paragliding comes pretty close. There couldn’t be a better place to experience the thrill of paragliding than high above the beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, and the Twelve Apostles.
