"Drive along Chapman's Peak" Noordhoek Things to Do Tip by Jenniflower

Noordhoek Things to Do: 2 reviews and 3 photos


Chapman's Peak is a much travelled and absolutely stunning drive, taking you from Hout Bay to the other side of the mountain along a windy and narrow road, coming out at Noordhoek (in the Fish Hoek valley).

There has been extensive work done on it in the last few years as there had been some fatalities with rock falls, and so it has been made a lot safer, although this has taken away the natural element somewhat.

There is a toll for driving along here... R20 one way!

The locals arent too happy re this and get a concession. I do think it's a good idea though, as this section of the road needs a lot of maintenance, and people have actually died here in the past due to falling rocks.

This photo was taken on Chapman's Peak Drice at sunset, on the Noordhoek side. The colour of the rock is incredible!
