There is a small toll for this drive but it is one of the most beautiful drives I have ever done. It goes from Hout Bay to Simon's Town so you can do it as a part of a day out for others things too. Great stopping places for photographs.

Driving south from Cape Town this section of road is just spectacular for vistas. Approaching the turn towards Noordhoek on the west side of the M6 is a spectral view of a massive white beach that is stunning. Toll required....bring cash.

Apr 28: Selected this route to go to Simon town from CPT just like that on GPS and what a wonderful drive. Though this is a toll road, it is worth it. There are many places to stop and take some very pretty pictures. It was to windy though. This is a beautiful drive - must do.

The drive would have been better had it been a sunny day but even so the views were still fantastic - especially looking back towards Hout Bay. The toll fee is R42 per car and there's a strange turn round system about half way up from the Cape Town direction and a chap stamps your ticket - not sure what... More

Like many South Africans, this is my umpteenth return to Chapman's. This is however my first return since the upgrade and reopening. The view points are extremely neat and the views are as breathtaking as ever.
