Cape St Francis

Go Back

Cape St Francis has the most beautifully pristine beach. A symmetrical curving stretch of beach of gleaming sand in the lee of rolling dunes. The beach leads your eyes to the lighthouse, built in 1878, which warns ships of the dangerous reefs that stretch more then a kilometre out to sea. Viewed from the sky, the lighthouse stands on a promontory - thundering waves splashing white foam ribbons on the huge coastal boulders. 

Fifteen kilometres west lies Oyster Bay, a hamlet jealously nurtured by the inhabitants. It is possible to walk the rugged coast line to Oyster Bayand to arrive at the most welcoming beach where the only foot prints may be yours.
