Photographer's Note

Clarence Drive provides pleasant whale watching spots, all along the route where you can stop and watch the Southern Right Whales visit the sheltered shallow bays of the South African coastline each year.

Clarence Drive leads through the Kogelberg Biosphere, the first and only Biosphere in South Africa to be proclaimed by UNESCO: a testament to the stunning diversity and large number of its flowering plants, many of which are found nowhere else in the fynbos biome.
The whole Hangklip-Kleinmond area (Rooiels, Pringle Bay, Betty's Bay and Kleinmond) is to be managed according to international principles, which aim to combine conservation, sustainable use of natural resources and wise development.

Access to this particular beach is restricted by a round-the-clock security team/gate and only persons/vehicles with a permit can enter designated areas. Wildlife and unspoiled sunsets like this one are therefore plentiful and amazing.
