Chapman's Peak Drive is one of the most spectacular coastal
roads in South Africa, linking the seaside community of Hout Bay to
the Noordhoek Valley along the Atlantic Coast, with breathtaking
views from along the narrow, winding road blasted into the cliffs.
Constructed in 1915, the six-mile (9km) route took about seven
years to complete and was built as a shorter, alternative route
between Cape Town central and the South Peninsula. Many visitors
use this scenic route to reach Cape Point Nature Reserve situated
at the tip of the Peninsula.
