This drive is well worth it if you're in the area - the pass is only around 14km long and there are a number of view points along the way. We were staying in Barrydale so did the route both ways and it's impressive with craggy mountains and a deep ravine. At it's height the pass is around 1000ft. We... 更多
We travelled through this pass from Barrydale to the coast early in the morning - the rock formations looked spectacular in the dawn light and we had the road to ourselves! The road surface was in very good condition and the recommended speed caution signs were invaluable, especially on the descent! We stopped at the viewsites which offered safe off-road... 更多
This is a very pretty pass, not a technical pass at all that requires any fancy driver abilities. It is easy and pleasant and very pretty, even for drivers like me who have just basic driving skills.

One guy jokingly said it means Women's pass in old Khoi language. It is over 15 km long and has magnificent view points, but be careful on the... 更多
I just love this 17km scenic drive linking the towns of Barrydale and Swellendam (going through Suurbraak first). It travels through some of the most beautiful mountain scenery. On maps and GPS this pass is designated as route R324. Make the effort and stop at some of the amazing view points... the best most probably opposite Die Drupkelder (a small... 更多
Travelling from Suurbrak to Barrydale is this lovely pass built by Thomas Bain. Through mountain fynbos this well maintained tarred pass is easy to drive, and a pleasure to view. There are numerous laybys along this route, so take your time and stop along the way.
