|Chapman’s Peak is most famous for being a scenic drive. The road is windy and tight and hugs the cliffside, with an impressive drop into the bay. The views are spectacular, and the road is in very good condition, but you will have to pay to enter this short section of Cape Town. The drives starts near to Noordhoek Beach and finishes around Hout Bay Beach.|
