Kalk Bay is one of South Africa's oldest towns. It represents a working (fishing) harbour. Full of locals it offers a range of treats for all the senses. It's colorful fisher folk who have lived there generation after generation make the venue particularly. Originally stranded fisher folk from the Philippine islands - now diluted with doses of "Boer and Brit" DNA this community is unique on earth.

We want to showcase a particular restaurant which overlooks the harbour. Situated on the left hand side of Boyes Drive just after the turn (there is abundant safe parking) is JJ's Curry house and takeaways.

There you will find delicious curry-style cuisine made by a real Durban Indian chef.

It's great food there and the place is unlicensed. Thus it makes for an inexpensive outing. The food is authentic and delicious. Try their samosas which are home made. Among the best and only R 6 each. It is one of a very few eateries that sells Bunny Chow! A unique SA curry delicacy and street food combo.

If you forget to bring booze there is a Bottle Shop within a short walk away.

Enjoy yourselves at this unique Authentic Indian Restaurant - set in the heart of a fishing village ...

I have been visiting Kalk Bay Harbour for many years. It's a working harbour - so they keep it real with seagulls and fish smells! The walk along the pier (in good weather only!) and the many eating options make this a great place to visit. You Cann also purchase lovely fresh fish straight off the boats!

Pleasant working harbour to take a stroll around. A couple of restaurants in the harbour itself and plenty on the main road around the corner.

A treat is seeing the sea lions both swimming in the harbour and lazing around waiting for fish scraps from the fishermen.

It’s interesting to walkthrough the colorful harbor and see the fishing trawlers and boats. The nets and crayfish cages are impressive.

En route to Cape Point it is a really great place to stop The old bay is a working seaport for fishing vesels. You can watch the fresh fish catch and wander down the pier. Quaint and lovely. Worth a stop

The harbour is quite small, but always offers a diversity of experience no matter what time of year you visit. Go for the view, the boats, the people and of course, the fish.

Kalk Bay is a quaint little town with lots of fun shops and cafes. Take a stroll down to the harbor and see the fishermen and seals. Have a luxury dinner or a little brekkie. Great place to spend the day and relax
