Port St Francis boasts a luxury yacht harbor as well as being the home port to a vast number of chocca boats. It is tranquil and a nice experience to stroll around and watch the boats come in and out of the port. There are lots of options for restaurants for coffee or a lunch of the best and freshest calamari or fish and chips along all off the South African coastline as this is the hub of chocca fishing in SA! If you are there when the fishing boats come in you will see the resident otter family come rite up to beg for fish!

This port is very quiet and fairly empty. Almost looks deserted. But it makes for a great photo op. A bit run down, can be improved. Do stop here when you're in st Francis bay

There are a few restaurants in the port and most have interesting views of this busy little port. Various activities take place from here and aspiring fisherman would enjoy the fishing boats.
