Walked all the way from the Long Beach sign in Kommetjie to the end of Noordhoek beach at Chapman's Peak. A great workout and lovely fresh air activity which took 3 hours for the return walk, but really worth it! Another tick off the bucket list as one of the longest beach walks. Although we did it in the winter,...

Basically this is a big seafront house on the Cape in a superb setting. The rooms are luxurious and the sound of the sea as you go through the patio door is invigorating. It's a funny old immediate area that we didn't really get to explore but we didn't feel much need to leave our hotel setting. I imagine in...
