The hosts, Miemie and Gerhard,made us feel very welcome as this was our first visit to St Francis Bay, which turned out to be a quiet and nice town at the seaside. We spent two nights at the Cycads and would definitly return back. A nice, cooked breakfast is included. The beach easily reached by a short stroll from the guesthouse. The restaurants visited downtown were a big disappointment, however Gerhard made a reservation at the "Five Elements" which was absolutely outstanding and worth alone a visit to St Francis Bay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- When intrepid Portuguese explorer Manual de Perestrelo weighed anchor in this beautiful sheltered bay in 1575, he named it "Bahia de Soa Francisca" after the Monastery of St Francisca, in his hometown of Santareme, hence the name St Francis Bay. Today you will find a tranquil "Village" with an abundance of thatch-roof homes, on the sea, with a lot to offer. Rest, peace, Golf (4 courses within a 60km radius including the well-known "Links" course), walk ways, sea and canal boat trips, superb fishing, super restaurants as well as the Port St Francis harbour. For those who enjoy surfing: "Bruce's Beauties" is world renowned and within easy walking distance from Cycads. During the December holiday season tandem sky-diving is also offered. All amenities are close by. So, come and Feel the Breeze!! ... more less
