A good stop for a couple of days, more if you are a golfer. A very safe area. Easy driving distance from Port Elizabeth and onwards to Plettenburg Bay.

Cape St Francis is a magic holiday destination with Cristal clear water, perfectly clean beaches, nice walking routes and very good surf breaks. The beach is ideal for kids at low tide as there are rock pools and big stretches of shallow water for them...More

What a lovely stop! Sea, sand and flowers - lovely even in the wind and the cold. Take a drive and say you've been there!

Seal point is well worth a visit and allow a few hours.There is a lighthouse that was closed when we were there but I think it is normally open to the public. The nature reserve is worth the time all by it's self.

A beautiful place for long quiet walks with just the wind, waves and sand! A place not to be missed! Beauty at its very best!

Love watching the surfing. Walking and collection shells. Wonderful big beaches. A great place to swim in the sea.

It is a bit of a drive out to Seal Point and we were somewhat disappointed that the lighthouse was swathed in scaffolding for repairs (but happy to see the efforts for preservation). But, we had a great time visiting Cape St Francis Penguin Rescue...More

To be fair, the light house is being rebuilt. I am told that there is a seal rescue centre, but it wasn't open when we were there. The view is pretty good from the coast, but what this is crying out for would be a...More
