For a small amount you can drive Chapmans peak, which has a stunning 'must see' view - we went there for the sunset, and it was breath-taking. The drive itself is 10km, and we decided to go both ways and get the full ' package' of beauty, which took approximately 1 1/2 hour including he sunset.

When you hear this described as one of or even THE most scenic drive in the world take it seriously. We love here so we get to do it often. It is not possible that it will ever grow old. Just stunning. Watch out for cyclist around the corners.

What a drive it was ... The scenary is breathtaking. The view over Hout Bay is amazing. Drive safely and enjoy the landscape. You feel like you're In the Furkapass In Switzerland, just like the James Bond movie.

Find a nice day and go for a road trip. Incredible scenery. Make sure you stop a few times along the way to soak up the vista and don't be tempted to turn round part way along. You won't be disappointed.

We drove from Cape of Good Hope to V&A via Misty Cliff, Noordhoek, Llandudno and Camp's Bay. The drive was fun! The view was breath taking. There are many viewing points so make sure you stop at a few for the fantastic Atlantic Ocean view. Great for sunset photography too.

A drive to remember, inspiring the most amateur of photographer to try his utmost! Clean roads, many stop points and viewing spots, uninterrupted views and even a bit of architecture with the support structures. Start in Cape Town and drive all the way on a round trip, visiting Llandudno, Hout Bay, Fish Hoek, Simonstown and Kalk Bay amongst many others.... More

We traveled from Noordhoek toward Hout bay and made few stops at the Chapman's Peak Drive. The views of the Atlantic ocean are fantastic. If you are visiting Cape Town try to visit it .

The windy strip of road is surrounded by magnificent scenery. Be sure to stop and take in the views back to Hout Bay and take that memorable photo. Make sure you include on your day to up to the cape.
