The ‘northern corner’ suburb of Noordhoek, so named due to the village’s beginnings in the northern corner of the farm Slangkop, is zealously guarded by its residents, who have largely retained the sensitive balance of agricultural, rural and residential living that makes Noordhoek such a sought after suburb today.
Farms in this part of Cape Town, a good 25 minutes’ drive from the city centre, originally supplied vegetables to ships calling in at Simon’s Town. Farming and small holdings are still a large part of Noordhoek’s appeal today, but wine, organic produce, meat and eggs are supplied to the city’s burgeoning local farmers’ markets instead. Noordhoek lies on the Atlantic coast at the southern end of Chapman’s Peak Drive and is one of the few places left in the city where one can still hear owls hoot at night. Noordhoek has attracted a blend of modest cottages and luxury homes that offer inspiring views over Long Beach, which stretches for over 8 km of wide sandy, unspoiled beach that borders on wetlands and eventually links up with Kommetjie. Locals ride their horses here and the dunes are popular with dogs and children alike.
One can easily reach Hout Bay (the other end of Chapman’s Peak Drive) from here and neighbouring suburbs are Kommetjie, Scarborough and Fish Hoek. The local Noordhoek Farm Village is a great place to pick up organic produce, drop in for breakfast or tea and provides a play area for children.
