This harbour has just a few boats docked at any time and they share space with the delightful seals and the fisherman, so it's busy in a really quiet, leisurely way. Take a little stroll along the harbour wall, feel the sea spray on your...More

Small functioning harbour with fish available dockside at times. Several eating spots around and on the Main Street, fair amount of parking and even a tidal swimming pool. Have previously eaten at Harbour House and 5hat was good.

Always a lovely place to hang around and watch the lazy seals hanging about waiting for a snack from the fishing boats.

Kalk Bay Harbour is a wonderful place to go and enjoy lunch/dinner with friends and family. There are a few places to choose from and the views are simply outstanding. Very peaceful and lots of happiness. Make it an unforgettable experience!!

One of the few working small fishing harbours. Great just to stroll around and take in the life of the fishermen / women. Fresh fish available to purchase. A few restaurants to choose from (Kalky's a very good choice!). Some friendly seals could be in...More

This small harbour is home to the majority of False Bay's fishing trawlers and as such, it is bustling with activity, esp when the vessels return with their catch. Tourists are not the only ones to flock here, as this is a popular spot for...More
