One of the most spectacular coastal roads in South Africa and the world. It links the seaside community of Hout Bay to the Noordhoek Valley along the Atlantic Coast, with breath-taking views from along the narrow, winding road blasted into the cliffs. Use this scenic route to reach Cape Point Nature Reserve, situated at the tip of the Peninsula. There are several gorgeous picnic sites and viewpoints along the route and it is very popular with cyclists. Chapman's Peak Drive is also the ideal vantage point for whale watching, the peak whale season being mid-August to mid-November. Hiking up Chapman's Peak and through Silvermine Nature Reserve and the Cape Peninsula National Park offers spectacular views over the South Peninsula. With sheer cliffs below, soaring mountains above, and the ocean stretching to the horizon, this dramatic stretch of road is a must-see for tourists in Cape Town. Open 24 hours, although the road closes occasionally due to heavy rainfall, or rockfalls. Chapman's Peak Drive is operated as a toll-road and fees apply.
