We spent a wonderful 4 days at the Cycads on Sea earlier this month mainly thanks to the friendly hosts, Gerhard & Miemie. The Cycads is ideally located overlooking the sandy East Cape beaches of St Francis Bay. All units have direct access which makes it easy to come and go. Breakfasts are excellant and Gerhard proves detailed directions of where to find good dinner menus.
- 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
