St Francis Bay at a glance

Nowhere in the whole of South Africa will you find a village as pleasing to the eye, as St Francis Bay. It defies description and has to be seen to be believed.

The village has evolved out of the vision of a man with an eye for aesthetics. 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

The tranquil village of St Francis Bay boasts unique building styles, where black roofed and white-walled homes surround the canals and just down the road a Mediterranean building style fills the ridges of Santareme. From here the Kromme River can be navigated for 10km by leisure boat or canoe, whilst the extensive canal system offers residents and holidaymakers an exotic marina lifestyle
