Chapman’s Peak Drive winds its way between Noordhoek and Hout Bay on the Atlantic Coast on the south-western tip of South Africa. The 9km route has 114 curves and skirts the rocky coastline of Chapman’s Peak (593m), which is the southerly extension of Constantiaberg. Sir Frederic De Waal ordered the construction of the Hout Bay – Noordehoek Road in the early 1900’s.  The route took 7 years to complete and was first opened in 1922. The road was widened in 1962 and in 1977 a portion of the road was washed away resulting in a bridge to replace the damaged section.
