Suikerbossie Viewpoint in Mountainside, Gordons Bay, Western Cape
You will find the Suikerbossie Viewpoint on the R44 just a short distance out of the central business district of Gordons Bay, shortly before the turnoff to the Steenbras Dam Viewpoint. This viewpoint is very popular for family and 'selfie' photography.
It is a most worthwhile stop for magnificient views over False Bay and in whaling season during the months between June to December it is good site for viewing Southern Right Whales. The best months however, are August to October as most of the whales come inshore to give birth.
Southern Right Whales can be recognised by the absence of a fin on their back and the presence of wart-like structures on their head.
