Boyes Drive is perfect for two reasons; you get to bypass crazy St James / Kalk Bay traffic and you get to enjoy incredible views. Plenty of parking / stop off points if you want to pull over. Come in whale season if you can!

Take a drive on Boyes Drive if you are driving to Cape Point. It has fantastic views overlooking False Bay. Take time to stop and soak up the view at least once. The shark spotters lookout is worth a stop at and offers great views...More

Boyes Drive is a relatively under-rated tourist attraction: used by commuters every day, provides a variety of the most wonderful views over False Bay. The drive is always uplifting

Every where we went we used Boyes Drive as it is so lovely. The beach scene below with the surfers and the bathers is like a carpet. Pure white sand and blue sea make this place to stop and take dreamy pictures.
