The Scenic drive is perfect for entry point to the "back" beaches" of Beachport. It is great for walking, fishing & taking photograhy.

We did this drive twice. The first one in the evening was cloudy and dark as we arrived late. So, we did the nhext one in the bright morning sun and enjoyed the views so much. There are many stops with adequate parking for you to take photos of different features.

It didn't take us long to do the drive and we stopped at all the little parking bays to take holiday snaps. Very scenic!

We decided to give the Bowman Scenic Drive a shot since we were in Beachport and we’re sure glad we did! I really appreciated that they bothered to erect lots of signs telling people how to get to the drive; we had decided to drive to Beachport really last minute with no preparations whatsoever, and the signs really helped point...

Very easy drive to explore the coastline, with parking bays to get to the beach. The salmon hole is very popular with fisherman, the inlets and rock faces on the sea side are fantastic. We loved the brisk walk along the long jetty, fresh air and clean sea which looks inviting. The salt pool further inland was okay, rather cold.

Very pretty scenic drive with lots of places to hike, swim, play, rock pooling or just admire. The lighthouse, pool of Siloam, the Salmon Hole and Post Office Rock are just a few of the sights along this rugged coast of the Southern Ocean. We rode this tourist drive with our family of 8. Hilly at the start then it... More

Very easy drive and lots of stunning lookouts. Highly recommended. The water is jade blue with different shades. You will find beautiful beaches and all kinds of rock shapes. The jetty is also impressive (over 700 meters). Beachport is a vert Nice place to visit, located south of Robe.

This short drive beginning in Beachport provides some great views of the surrounding coastline. Of interest is the Pool of Siloam and the Post Office Rock/Salmon Hole beaches. The swimming at this beach is fantastic at low tide as the beach is protected by a reef and the water although cold is very clear.
