Skirting the base of the Hottentot's-Holland mountains, it traverses the north eastern corner of the False Bay coastline. This stretch of coastline is also a good vantage point for whale spotting as the Southern Right whales make their appearance every year around September/October. Several fynbos endemic bird species can also be spotted here. #ClarenceDrive #GordonsBay #CapeTown
