“Amazing Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Chapman's Peak Drive connects Hout Bay to the Southern Peninsula. Recently renovated, it is now a superbly surfaced toll road, with many scenic lay bys. Photogenic views of Hout Bay and Long Beach.
Excellent for cycling, hiking, jogging, especially from the Hout Bay side.
Cape Town and the Peninsula make for excellent road trips. Dining, swimming, accommodation options abound.
Best City in the World! There, I've said it.

“Good drive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Only saw a little bit of this drive as most of it was closed. What was visible looked great but I understand from the locals the road is way too often closed due to land slides so be aware, you might not get to see it properly either.

“Fun to drive, even more fun to cycle! Fantastic sunsets!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

This winding toll road from Noordhoek to Hout Bay is one of the most filmed stretches of road in the world....drive it or cycle it, and you'll know why! Stunning views of the Atlantic and Hout Bay stretch under you. Do check to make sure it's open -- sometimes the road is closed due to landslides. Best time to drive it is right before sunset...take a little picnic or a bottle of good Cape wine, and watch the sunset over the water from one of the many scenic pull-outs. Beware of cyclists, especially in the morning.
