Weekly Travel Post: Cape St. Francis …

Have you ever heard the saying “Go at least once a year to a place you have never been before”

Well that’s what we decide to do one year. We decided to explore the Garden Route. While looking at the map we came across St. Francis Bay. It sounded like somewhere nice to stop so we said let go!

We did book a bit late so we were only able to get accommodation at a Guest House (B&B), Lyngenfjord House. in Cape St. Francis and not St. Francis Bay. (not that the places are far from each other).We were a bit worried because you generally here all these stories about B&B’s. To our surprise it was a very nice B&B with lovely rooms, a gorgeous pool and breathtaking views.

The owners were just a lovely, friendly and very accommodating. Breakfast was awesome! Not what we were expecting at all and the cherry on the top, we were walking distance to the beach!

This was just such a gorgeous beach!

Cape St. Francis is a small village town situated just south of St. Francis Bay. It’s a perfect setting for a peaceful beach holiday. However the only downfall was that there were no restaurants within walking distance. If you wanted anything you would have to go to St Francis bay which isn’t to far.

The restaurants in St. Francis Bay are situated in a village setting. It really is a lovely place.

One of the main attractions in St. Francis Bay are the St. Francis Canals.

The St. Francis Canals are a man-made canals system on the banks of the Kromme River.IMG_2018 IMG_2021

These homes on the canal are perfect to escape to. These people are really living the dream!

We were unaware of how nice Cape St. Francis and St Francis Bay are. If we knew that some house’s are available to rent we would have! A must for next time! There is also a Cape St. Francis Resort which is great for families, Cape St. Francis Resort!

There are just so many things to do in these two village towns. Loads of watersports, golf, beaches and so much more! It really is worth checking out!
