Activities in and around Port St Francis and St Francis Bay.....
With beautifully pristine beaches stretching for miles and meeting the horizon in a perfect blue line, Cape St Francis is a picture of beauty. If surfing is your passion, then Bruce’s Beauties is a must - one of the worlds best known beach breaks, featured in the 60’s cult film, Endless Summer. It’s yours to enjoy the perfect wave.
Enjoy a leisurely walk with someone special, breathing in the fresh air, feeling the cool water and the sand between your toes. With its spectacular multitude of fauna and flora, it is easy to lose oneself in the alluring beauty of Cape St Francis nature. Whilst in Cape St Francis be sure to explore the “Genesis” shipwreck off Shark Point. Enjoy the walks and trails, acres of fynbos and early summer wild flowers carpeting a large expanse in vibrant colour.
Watch whales and dolphins at play, explore the tide washed beach, leave footprints in the sand and find yourself an exclusive spot in the sun to relax in the warmth of perfect days. Life is the most important investment and what better way to allow it to mature and grow than by treating yourself, your family and your friends to a piece of this heaven to indulge in and to share.
St Francis Bay is truly a paradise for water-sport enthusiasts. Windsurfing, water skiing, snorkelling, swimming, sunbathing, exploring the canals by canoe and diving are only a few of the activities that can be enjoyed by the whole family. The Kromme River is navigable for 8 kilometres and is the favourite of many a fisherman and sailing enthusiast.
Take a leisurely horseback ride along the pristine white beaches, or through the hills colourfully clothed in rare Cape coastal fynbos. With active bowls, squash and tennis clubs, you’ll never run out of opportunities to enjoy St Francis.
St Francis is a great place to visit. It’s also an ideal place to live. The many restaurants, open all year, offer a full variety of South African and international cuisine. Greek, Mediterranean, Italian and local fresh fish and succulent calamari may be found here. The central Village shopping centre with a variety of retail outlets makes shopping a convenient and enjoyable experience. St Francis also plays host to some of the most fun filled festivals including the popular Calamari Festival during late September and the Port St Francis triathlon in December
