Going to see about getting myself a place here. This is just soooo right! Of all the potential places to seek a haven in this World, Cape St Francis has got to be up there! ❤❤

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 of season.

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 parking too.

Very cozy little village that has lots of houses with thatched roofs. A bit "off" but worth the extra mile.

Not much going on except eating or buying fish and walking along a very little boardwalk underneath appartments. All looks a bit rundown.

A small but very busy working harbour. Colourful and a hive of activity. If you are in St Francis, go for a walk around the harbour.
