EXPERIENCE NOETZIE BEACH, KNYSNA, SOUTH AFRICA
Noetzie Beach, nestled behind rolling hills on the Garden Route, is a pristine and enchanting South African gem. The secluded beach, adorned with captivating flora and manmade castles perched on cliffs, exudes a fairytale charm. As we delve into its history, we discover its early days were shaped by the Khoisan people, who named it ‘Noetziekamma,’ meaning ‘dark water’ due to the lagoon’s deep hue. With an almost mystical allure, Noetzie Beach stands as a testament to centuries of natural beauty and cultural significance, inviting visitors to explore its intriguing past and embrace its magical ambiance.
In the 1930s, Noetzie Beach welcomed its first ‘castle,’ unintentionally born as a holiday home for Herbert Stephen Henderson and his family from Rhodesia. Constructed with natural beach stones, its castle-like appearance emerged when Henderson playfully added turrets on a suggestion. The accidental castle sparked a trend, with more structures following suit. In 1942, Henderson built ‘The Castle,’ and the Lindsay family erected ‘Perekuil’ in the 1960s. Henderson’s son contributed ‘Montrose’ in the 1970s. Despite being holiday homes, the Noetzie castles fuel enchanting tales of stowaway princesses and pirates, contributing to the mystical allure of this South African beach.
