St Francis Bay itself is a unique coastal resort development, situated mid-way between the Garden Route and Port Elizabeth. It is popular for its predominantly thatched architecture; its 2.5 km beach with fine, clean sand and world-class surfing; its 5.6 km of tidal marina, known as the Canals; the Kromme River, navigable for 12 km, with a large estuary beach and abundant bird life at low tide; Port St Francis, headquarters of the local calamari fishing industry, and from which deep-sea safaris can be arranged; two excellent links golf courses; and beautiful coastal walks through Fynbos nature reserves.
Beach: Waterways is situated on the Kromme River estuary. This is tidal, and at low tide there is a huge estuary beach immediately across the road. Wonderful bird life, walking and fishing, with wind & kite surfing under suitable conditions.
Golf: Not on a golf course as such, but within about 2 kilometres of 2 courses, one of which, the Links, is rated in the top 10 in South Africa.
Family friendly: Children are welcome. The estuary beach is ideal for young children, and boating on the canals for older ones..
