“Fun drive with lots of spots for photos!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

The Chapman's Peak drive is only approx 4 km but you will stop so many times to just take photos or take in the views. The drive is on a toll road but it is very reasonable (~ 37 rand one way). We liked this drive so much, we did it twice!

“Amazing”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

One of the best drive throughs I have ever had in my Life. The view from the top takes one's breath away. Wish that I had more time to get down and enjoy the view at many places but couldnt do so due to paucity of time. Would recommend this as a must see for anyone visiting Cape Town, SA.

“Stunning marine drive!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

You MUST take this drive when you are in Cape Town. The scenes are breathtaking, with ocean on one side and mountains on another. You'll end up stopping multiple times on the roadside to take in all the views. Its a toll-road, slightly expensive but totally worth every penny. One of the best marine drives in the world undoubtedly.
Best done on a clear day.

“Stunning”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

If you are visiting the Cape, you must make this drive. The view is breathtaking all along the entire route. When you arrive at the lookout point, you can see for miles, and the scenery is unbelievable. I could have spent hours just staring at all the beautiful landscape.
