Chapman's Peak is a mountain on the Cape Peninsula, with a 5.5-mile road known for its scenic beauty. The road winds from Hout Bay to Noordhoek, clinging to the side of the steep mountain almost the whole way. The road was built in the early 20th century, and boasts 114 turns in its short 5.5-mile distance.
The road itself may not be long, but you'll want to take your time – not just because of the many curves, but also because of the gorgeous views. There are plenty of places to stop and enjoy the scenery along the way.
Some renovation work in 2009 made Chapman's Peak Drive safer (it had been closed a few times in its history due to rock slides), but the road can still be closed during severe weather. The toll for driving the route is SAR31 per vehicle. Locals call the road “Chappies.”
