Kalk Bay at a glance

Named as one of the ‘coolest neighbourhoods in the world’ by Forbes in 2018, the bohemian Kalk Bay is a treasure trove of beautiful properties set in an unpretentious suburb here you can still get the catch of the day at the harbour or dine at the iconic Olympia Café.

Residents are spoiled with boutique stores, the Dalebrook rock pool, along with many other fantastic restaurants, incredible surf opportunities, as well as quaint harbour and mountain views.

Antique stores, second-hand book shops, art galleries and a thriving theatre have given rise to a real sense of community in Kalk Bay.

Originally inhabited by shipwrecked seamen and deserters, the lively village takes its name from lime-burners, who used kilns to extract lime from sea shell deposits to use in building construction. The 72-seater theatre/restaurant, built in 1876, on Main Road is housed in the old Kalk Bay Dutch Reformed church - a national heritage and protected building.

The homes here are built on the mountain with sought-after harbour and False Bay views. Ambling through the noticeably English lanes is a treat all of its own as a number of famous South African families lived in the area or had holiday homes here, and timely renovations have revived the historical village.
