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 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.
