Where is it?


St Francis Bay is an exclusive holiday village on South Africa's famous Garden Route between Port Elizabeth and Cape Town. All homes have to be painted white and most have thatched roofs (indigenous grass). There are two golf courses, one a Jack Nicklaus links course. Take a day trip to a Big 5 game reserve, to Plettenberg Bay or Knysna, known as the jewel of the Garden Route. If you are a surfer, St Francis Bay is home to the world's perfect waves. It is an idyllic place to unwind and spend a holiday.
