Fodor's Review

Nahoon Beach, at the mouth of the Nahoon River, is about a 10-minute drive from the city. There's some fantastic surf—but only for people who know what they're doing. It's also just a beautiful beach for sunbathing, watching surfers, and evening walks, and the lagoon is good for swimming and snorkeling. From the end of the beach nearest the lagoon you can look straight across to the Blue Lagoon Hotel on the other side of the water. The walk from the parking lot to the beach takes you through a beautiful forest, which helps make the beach feel secluded despite its proximity to the city. There are picnic tables, fire pits, and a playground, making a perfect spot for a braai. Amenities: lifeguards; toilets; food and drink; parking. Best for: walking; sunsets.
