Chapmans Peak - Review
Chapman's Peak is the name of a mountain on the western side of the Cape Peninsula. The drive to it is quite scenic and a must do while in Cape Town. The drive itself is worth it but there is a lot to do in this area too.
Close to the blue shoreline, Chapman’s peak is a picturesque place to go to. Photographers, adventurers, health freaks and nature lovers alike are bound to love this place. The activities that can be done here include fishing, cycling, running, whale watching, water sports and many more. As a part of the Silvermine Natural Reserve it is also a haven for budding ornithologists who would love to explore the bird life in the area.
The views from atop the peak are stunning to say the least. It is a good idea to take the drive on a weekday as the place will certainly be crowded on the weekends.

Chapmans Peak, Cape Town Reviews
The views on Chappies are amazing. It is an experience not to be missed when you'rd in the Cape. You must find out if the road is open, there are road closures from time to time. A truly South African engineering marvel!
Stunning views, especially coming from Scarborough up, with a spectacular view of the beach when rounding the last few kilometers, definitely a spectacular view of the mountains and ocean, lots of cyclist and cars are on the route.
The views from the top are breathtaking. You can see everything and get perfect shots of sunsets. The only downside is the amount of cars. Getting up and down is chaos. There is so many cars and sitting in traffic is a guarantee. But the view from the top is worth the wait, that's why there's so many cars to begin with.
Honestly the most amazing place I've ever been.
An absolutely amazing experience on the mountain side with a stunning view of Hout Bay. At night, the area and drive seems other worldly
