Long Beach

Long Beach Review

A vast expanse of white sand stretching 6½ km (4 mi) from the base of Chapman's Peak to Kommetjie, this is one of the wildest and least populated beaches, backed by a lagoon and private nature reserve. Because of the wind and the space, it attracts horseback riders and walkers rather than sunbathers, and the surfing is excellent. There are no lifeguards and there is no bus service, and, as at some other beaches, there are real safety concerns. Despite patrollers on horseback and an all-terrain vehicle, crime is an issue here, and women in particular should be careful. You'd do well not to visit this beach unless it is well populated.
