  White sands of Long Beach, Noordhoek
by Jenniflower

In the Fish Hoek Valley, on the other side of the valley, on the Kommetjie and Noordhoek side, is Long Beach. It has this name with good cause, as it is a few kms long!

An attraction here is to go camel or horse riding on the beach... great fun and a once in a lifetime experience.

Just be careful when the camel wants to get up or down though, as they dip suddenly, and you might be at a 45 degree angle and have to hold on for dear life!

Also, be careful not to stand too close to their moths... they make fish that's gone off smell good....

Address: Long Beach, Noordhoek
Directions: In Fish Hoek Valley
