The world-famous Chapman's Peak Drive (www.chapmanspeakdrive.co.za/) is located south of Hout Bay in the direction towards Noordhoek and known as one of the hot spots for commercial shootings of the automotive industry. 'Chappies' as the locals call it, is one of the most scenic coastal drives in the world, with over 100 bends in its approximately 10 km length.
Many scenic points and picnic spots along the road invite you to take a break and enjoy the beautiful view of the cliffs. From many spots on the drive you can enjoy one of the spectacular sunsets of Cape Town.
Many visitors also take the hike up Chapman's Peak - not only for the fun experience and lovely view at the top, but also to visit East Fort (http://www.houtbayheritage.org.za/page16.html), a historic construction for the defense of Hout Bay.
