Noordhoek, at the southern end of Chapman's Peak Drive, is a vibrant rural and artistic community village just 25 minutes south of Cape Town – the last remaining truly rural area and country village in the Cape Peninsula. Noordhoek offers a tranquil country lifestyle combined with a colourful village atmosphere.
Horse-riding on Noordhoek Beach is one of the most popular activities in Noordhoek and Noordhoek Farm Village is one of the main centres in the town for accommodation, dining, shopping and entertainment. The Red Herring Trading Post is another popular shopping and eating centre.
Vineyards and vegetable farming are returning to Noordhoek. Indigenous Cape Fynbos - including groves of scarce Milkwood and Yellowwood trees - cover the slopes of surrounding mountains and stretch down to the coastal plain and wetlands area.
