The Dunes

Best Beach Horse Ride in the World

Film Location

Fashion shoot on Noordhoek Beach - model and crew

Horses from The Dunes Riding & Racing Stables are regularly featured in photo fashion shoots, and also in films and TV adverts.

Dunes Horseriding Stables Film Location

The Dunes Horseriding & Racing Stables is situated on the sand of Noordhoek Beach, which is a renowned location for shooting international films, adverts and magazine spreads.

This sleepy coastal village has almost every type of setting that a photo shoot could wish for. There are leafy lanes with horses grazing in every paddock, a village common surrounded by ancient oaks, a mountainous backdrop and a famous long, wide, white beach.

Beach hut

Noordhoek Beach has been transformed with Bedouin tents to resemble the Sahara Desert for a car 4x4 film shoot, while on another occasion it was the setting for a cavalry charge with over 100 hundred horses and actors in Roman costume. It has been a desert island scene with tumbled down shack and fake palm trees for Sinbad the Sailor and provides endless opportunities for fashion photographs.

Model walking on Noordhoek Beach

The Dunes can provide Production Companies with a safe off-road base, from which to access the beach. And can offer a variety of filming locations on its own premises, including use of horses, outbuildings, stables, paddocks and parking.
