  • We made this cornice path that goes from Hout Bay to Nordhoek... you have to pay an R50 toll back and forth but you don't have waste... it's amazing, it has many places where you can park to take pictures of the beautiful landscapes of the sea, the cliffs and the mountains. It's really worth it!!!

  • You'll see a lot of spectacular views along the cliff-lined path. The road is very popular with TV CF and the scenery is too good.
