Reviewed 7 May 2013

This is a quaint spot to visit and perhaps have a meal at the restaurants overlooking the boating activities.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

Very interesting visit. Good restaurants. The chokka boats are facinating. We enjoyed our swim at the private beach. Try and do the two harbours walk you will not be sorry. You will be lucky to view the cape otter.

“Boats and views”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

It was great views, see chokka baots in the harbour. Just make sure wind is not strong, as much nicer if you can sit outside at ons of the restaurants. Can a bit dead in quiet times it seems (or when weather is not good).

“Memorable Port St Francis”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

This charming little fishing harbor is truly delightful. Very picturesque and it feels quite European. We did struggle to find a restaurant and coffee shop open.

Reviewed 1 March 2013

Lovely beaches to walk along and great views of the ocean. Nice seats to fit on and not many people around when we were there.
