Port St Francis is the only privately owned working harbour in SA. Come see what how the chokka fleet operates while enjoying a meal at any of the restaurants. Accommodation available. Beautiful views of the ocean.

Worth a visit to eat fresh seafood and watch the sea. Beyond that, there’s not much there. The harbour itself has some lovely apartments overlooking it and it’s a working port, which is nice to watch

This port is very quiet and fairly empty. Almost looks deserted. But it makes for a great photo op. A bit run down, can be improved. Do stop here when you're in st Francis bay

There are a few restaurants in the port and most have interesting views of this busy little port. Various activities take place from here and aspiring fisherman would enjoy the fishing boats.

This small but bustling port is really quite charming, with its functions very clearly demarcated; the marina for the pleasure craft situated on the eastern side, whilst the commercial working harbour, used by the chocca boats, occupy the western section. A double -story building, with...More
