NOETZIE BEACH – Knysna

I have to say that there is nothing that can compare to the private castle on the beach in Knysna. It is for sure the most spectacular private beach in the world. The description on their site is totally accurate…

“Award-winning Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa’s ultra-luxury beach accommodation offering, Pezula Private Castle, is one of the most exclusive destinations in the world and is situated on exquisite Noetzie Beach, voted one of the three Top Beaches in South Africa.┬áLive like royalty in this magnificent residence, which is built into the cliff-face and offers discerning guests direct beach access, huge luxurious suites with private terraces, and personal service from a dedicated team of staff including an executive butler and private chef”.

UPDATE MARCH 10th, 2007. A comment form a reader.. thanks for the update

Noetzie is not a private beach and never has been. It was the only beach to stay non racial during the aparheid era and has always been a very popular beach among the local folks. The so called private castle was only recently bought from the family who built it in the 1930s.

The new owner of the castle was responsible for cutting off public access for over 3 years.
