Cape St Francis

4.3
Cape St. Francis (Kaap St Francis) is a village in South Africa, situated on a headland in the Eastern Cape Province. It is popular for its clean beaches and as a surfing location.The village is home to a Penguin Rescue and Rehabilitation Center as well as the Seal Point Lighthouse.The Irma Booysen Floral Reserve is the home to many species of flowers and plants.The adjacent village, St Francis Bay, was the site of "ten-million-to-one" surfing waves seen in the 1966 surf/travel documentary, The Endless Summer.Cape St. Francis is now known as one of the best surfing locations. Given its geological location, it is susceptible to swell year round from large low pressure systems that form between Antarctica and the southern tip of Africa. When large south west swell wrap around the coastline of the region and the prevailing offshore winds come up, the surfing is some say, arguably, as good as it gets.
Cape St Francis is in Eastern Cape. Make the most of your holiday in Cape St Francis by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our South Africa trip planner.
