Chapman's Peak Drive has spectacular scenery running alongside it and will leave you breathless. There are several spots to stop and take some photos. The toll road costs 42.00R for a normal car.

You really should not miss this. On one side you have massive majestic mountains and on the other sheer cliffs and the vast expanse and beauty of the ocean. It's difficult to believe that such natural beauty exists in reality.

If you haven't been, you're missing out! So unbelievably beautiful it's ridiculous. Lots of view points to take photos. Such a cool mountain pass, especially the part where the road is carved out of the mountain side. It is chargeable, but not expensive.
