One of the most scenic coastal routes I’ve ever travelled down is Chapman’s Peak Drive, a stunning road that twists and turns its way around the edge of the mountains, along the ocean. The road makes up part of the drive from the city of Cape Town all the way down to Cape Point, and it seems like a million miles away from South Africa’s bustling capital.
Although Cape Point is the destination that most people want to reach, there are plenty of places to stop along the way. Relax on the sandy beaches of Fish Hoek, grab some fish and chips from Hout Bay and say hello to the penguins at Boulder’s Beach. But, whatever you do, don’t miss passing through the spectacular Chapman’s Peak.
