The picturesque seaside resort of St Francis Bay is uniquely situated on the banks of an extensive network of canals linking the Kromme River estuary with the sea. Thatched and whitewashed cottages and Mediterranean style villas blend into the landscape to create an upmarket residential marina offering a wide variety of water-based activities including angling and sailing.
Long stretches of white, sandy beaches are perfect for soaking up the sun, long beach walks and shell collecting and the surf conditions are excellent. Hiking and biking trails, bird watching and golf can all be enjoyed.
In the distance lies Cape St Francis with its historic lighthouse built in 1878 to warn passing ships of the dangerous surrounding reefs.
