Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good views from the car but no viewpoints or places to stop, unless you Mount the kerb and park on the pavement. So you can’t fully appreciate the views.

Lovely to stop at the Shark Spotter Hut, the views stretches as far as the eyes can see into the Ocean, possible to see Dolphins, whales, sharks from this area. The view of the False Bay Coast area is absolutely stunning. You could see the surfers on their surfboards in the Water & frolicking in the waves....a surfers paradise!

I travel on Boyce’s drive whenever possible. When I visit my daughter. The views are spectacular.
Stop your car, get out and look at the mountains, Muizenberg beach. The vlei, and then further on kalkbay and further still. Keep stopping. One of my favourite stopping places is as you begin to descend. Park there and just absorb the beauty.

Boyes Drive is a great way to miss the traffic of the Main Road. You will miss Muizenburg and end up in Kalk Bay but, it is a very scenic drive.

One of the treats in Cape Town - the drive over Boyes Drive - choose a clear day and enjoy the views across False Bay. Highly recommended.

It's a beautiful drive cut into the mountain from Kalk Bay to Muizenberg. Take care when looking at the view. Rather stop from period to period. The standard of driving in SA city ntinues to deteriorate among the generally evolving disregard for the rule of Law. At the Kalk Bay entry to the drive on the left hand side there is a wonderful Indian Restaurant. Called JJ's. Authentic and BYO. Quality and affordable. Enjoy.

A drive along here gives one a really good idea of False Bay and just what it means to Cape Town. Read up on the history of this remarkable stretch of coastline and why it is called False Bay. Be careful where you stop as the road is busy and is an important thoroughfare for many residents.

What a stunning stretch along the Atlantic ocean with a highlight being the colorful beach huts which, if you’re a little patient ,you can get reflected in the water as the waves recede.

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