There’s nothing quite as liberating as the open road. Whether it be a short or long road trip, we’re purely spoilt for choice when it comes to different spots to stop off at while enjoying mesmerising views thanks to our beautiful Mother City.
Not only do these few spots have breathtaking views, but they could make the best memorable picnic spots to take family and friends. Indulge in some lovely road trip snacks such as biltong and fresh fruits to name a few or stop off at the nearest cafe for a takeaway and enjoy a good ole’ meal.
A popular scenic drive amongst locals. Chapman’s Peak has endless ocean views with many stop-off points to admire the view.
This destination boasts spectacular views of Muizenberg beach, but if you follow the road around the mountains behind False Bay, you will witness views of the harbour too.
Based in the heart of the Mother City, Signal Hill is the ultimate provider of panoramic views of our beautiful ocean and city at any given time, from sunrise to sunset.
Steenbras Mountain Pass, Gordon’s Bay:
This pass connects Gordon’s Bay on the R44 and Clarence Drive. The Steenbras Dam features at the top, but permit holders may proceed. However, it offers breathtaking views during both the day and night.
Sir Lowry’s Pass
Another very popular pass featured on the N2 national road. It crosses the mountain between Somerset West and the Elgin valley, promising views that’ll instantly fill you with a sense of peace and contentment.
