Geography and History

St Francis Bay, situated midway between Port Elizabeth and Knysna, in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa.  St Francis Bay offers a delightful escape from the pressures of daily life. Peace and tranquillity abound.

Nowhere in the whole of South Africa will you find a village as pleasing to the eye, as St Francis Bay - it has to be seen to be believed! Leighton Hulett started the town from a fishing camp of thatched rondavels, and friends who came to stay were so enchanted with the place, that they asked to be able to buy a piece of ground to build a place of their own.

His insistence on a specific style of architecture, preserving character, ensured the development of a village that is quite unique. And thus the township was born. A harmonious blend of homes, set against a background of azure sea, linked by canals by a wide river, white beaches and lush greenery.

 

Activities

St Francis Bay is a unique and exclusive paradise on South Africa's Sunshine Coast which draws people from all over the world. Enjoy the glorious beaches, excellent water-sports, a leisurely lifestyle and the magical beauty of its unspoilt surroundings.

The architecture provides a charm exuded by no other place. A Mediterranean section maintains the special quality of the village with its warm coloured walls and red roofs.
