Take your time driving, cycling or walking along ‘Chappies’, a 5km toll road linking Hout Bay with Noordhoek – it’s one of the most spectacular stretches of coastal highway in the world. There are picnic spots and viewpoints, and it’s certainly worth taking the road at least one way en route to Cape Point. The toll booth is at the Hout Bay end of the road; you're free to walk up here and along the road.

On the approach from Hout Bay look for a bronze leopard statue . It has been sitting there since 1963 and is a reminder of the wildlife that once roamed the area’s forests (which has also largely vanished).
