Next up in our travel series is the pleasant seaside town of St. Francis Bay.

One of my favourite places on this planet, my family and I have been making the long drive from Cape Town to the Eastern Cape for many years. The character and charisma so alluring one would dare not to visit.

St. Francis Bay

St. Francis Bay is found soon after the Tsitsikamma Forest just within the border of the Eastern Cape, right next to J-Bay. It is marked by tall Aloe plants and Milkwood Trees plus big white sand dunes, the classic coastal scrub of South Africa.

To us St. Francis speaks of cooking waves, quiet canal cruises, great seafood, epic coastal hikes and time together with family and friends.

Our favourite things to do are surfing Huletts Reef and grabbing a coffee at Bruce's Cafe afterwards, hiking or trail running along the Two Harbours Walk and Shark Point Trails, surfing again at Seal Point, having a laid back beach day or exploring the wonderful and quiet canals and Kromme River and having another surf if Bruce's Beauties is working.

Our favourite venues to eat out are definitely Nevermind, set under the classic lighthouse at Seal Point and Twenty-Two Eatery is super tasty too or a good old braai at home does the trick. It's also worth visiting the local St Francis Market when it is on.

Our favourite areas to stay are near the canals, at The Room Key or in Cape St. Francis.

St. Francis Bay is for those who are active, adventurous and at the same time know how to take an afternoon nap.
