Worth the trip. Spectacular drive. Many viewpoints to take breathtaking pictures. Didn't spot any sharks but they are out there!!! Didn't go swimming at Hout Bay, very windy day. Saw two seals sitting on the rocks. Was able to get very close.

Took a drive from Cape Town down through Kalk Bay, Simonstown and across to the Atlantic coast heading up to Hout Bay via Chapmans Peak - such a beautiful drive with Chapmans being the icing on the cake, really stunning!
