Beautiful views. Quicker route, but can get tourists that drive slowly and no overtaking most of the route.

Drove up the beautiful Buoyes drive which has the most amazing views of the sea and Muizenberg! I stopped on the side and went down a set of steps called the Manila steps, then stopped again by the little waterfall, and again by the Shark...More

Of course, the views are breathtaking, but it's also a lazy way to find hiking trails. You'll find a few along the mountainside.

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!

This is such a beautiful drive, where we can see Muizenberg from above and the beautiful seascape all the way to Simonstown. On a good day, once can see right across the bay. . it is well worth the drive!!

This walk takes you from lakeside to walk bay and from start to finish it gives you amazing views of false bay and the surrounding areas. Safety has been an issue, so try to walk with someone. This walk will give you a great workout,...More
