Barrydale 1/undefined by Tripoto


The drive from Oudtshoorn towards the tiny hamlet of Barrydale takes you along the spectacular Route 62 where the landscape changes dramatically from lush greenery to a semi-arid desert. The road is visible for miles endlessly with not a soul in sight.On your drive, stop at Calitzdorp, dubbed the ‘port wine capital of the world’, to partake in free wine-tasting along with a delicious lunch cooked with farm fresh produce. De Krans Estate produces some of the finest wines in the region and features a much-loved deli with outdoor seating.Once you arrive into Barrydale, settle in and spend the remaining time walking about the sleepy town, indulging in long lazy brunches, and gorging on its famous milkshakes. Although it doesn’t have “sights to see”, you’ll be tempted to settle here forever.
