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.

This is a great place to stroll around, watch the very active harbour and sip drinks or dine at the many restaurants

This is one of the sights to visit when staying in St Francis Bay. Fresh fish can be bought straight off the boats. Nice restaurants with good harbour view. But both were closed while we were there! I suppose it is not very busy out...More

It's not a big place and won't take long to walk around it. However there are one or two nice restaurants, one has super fresh fish straight off the boats and you can even see dolphins swimming by from your restaurant table. Plenty of free...More
