It’s very likely that either on your way to or from The Whale Coast (or possibly both) you’ll drive along the road from the Sir Lowry Pass, south towards Hermanus. The road is one of the most spectacular in South Africa, and can hold its head high in the company of the great marine drives from around the world. At times clinging to what seems like an impossibly small ribbon with rocks towering above you on the inland side and a sheer drop on the other, the views out over Walker Bay and across to the distant Cape Peninsula are truly stunning; every corner you turn unveils a yet more impressive vista. As if this wasn’t enough, during whale season you have a very good chance of seeing one or more of these creatures, perhaps breeching in a spectacular sheet of spray in the waters below.
