This week we draw you back to the Fairest Cape as we check out one of South Africa's light houses and a mountain pass which allows you perfect views of it. Our featured pass takes a look at a brilliantly camouflaged gun emplacement which guarded our western shores through a world war and we look at the nearby lighthouse which happens to be the tallest steel lighthouse in South Africa with its beam flashing its warning 41 metres above sea level. There are shipwrecks, a tiny harbour, beautiful beaches, crayfish, kelp and some of the biggest waves that lure serious surfers from around the globe.
Our header photo is by our favourite South African landscape photographer, Hougaard Malan, whose work we have featured many times on this site.

So head south over Chapman's Peak or Ou Kaapse Weg through Noordhoek towards the seaside village of Kommetjie, which has somehow remained locked away in a time-lapse and join us for a cyber drive over the Slangkop Pass and all it has to offer.

Next week we have something very different for you in the form of a pass filmed from a high-speed motorcycle.
Until then, drive safely and enjoy the reduced fuel price (whilst it lasts!)
