Long Beach, Noordhoek (not to be confused with Long Beach, Simon’s Town) is the most wonderful beach in Cape Town to walk on. It’s spacious, scenic, dog friendly, and sometimes you can see horses there. It goes on for miles. The water is freezing cold. There are a couple of places to surf, with a Shark Spotter on duty at the Chapmans Peak end. Also, there’s a shipwreck if you walk far enough (just don’t go alone – it’s not safe).
