Kalk Bay Travel Guide

Vibrant and bohemian, Kalk Bay is one of Cape Town’s most interesting and colourful seaside suburbs. There’s a pretty harbour utilized by the local fishing community who are hugely protective of their heritage. Their traditional fishing boats cast off before sunrise and are usually back by midday...

Nice Holiday - Kalk Bay and surroundings is very beautiful. I would visit it any time again.

Love it! - Kalk Bay has lovely shops and restaurants without the pretentiousness of other waterfront areas in the Cape Town region. It's relaxed, people are super nice, and it's fun!

Kalk Bay Love - Loved Kalk Bay, will be back to enjoy the food, sea and shops.

Lots to See and Do - The main street is lined with lots of quirky little shops. Great place to just walk around, window shop, people watch and get a good bite to eat. The seared tuna at Olympia is beyond words. I also had some uber decadent chocolate dessert at The Annex - I was on a chocolate high for a week.

The place to be - Everything in Kalk Bay is within safe walking distance and this is a great way to soak up the charm of the village. Kalk Bay offers a variety of quaint stores far removed from the impersonal malls of the city and Kalk Bay Books is one of the finest bookshops you will find anywhere in the country. The choice of exceptional Restarants is big. Daily fresh fish make the menus large and variable. Have a candle light dinner at Harbour House, sea food pasta with the locals at Cafe Olympia or fish and chips at Kalky's. If you feel like a drink, have a nice cocktail at Cape to Cuba or enjoy live music every weekend at Polana (winter specials for R60.00, unbelievable value for money. By far the best bar in Cape Town). Every year between July and November, many southern right whales can be spotted almost daily. For surfers the famous Muizenberg beach has the perfect waves and Kalk Bays three tidal pools are a great spot to swim. A bit of culture can be experienced at the Kalk Bay Modern or the charming theater which is located in an ancient church. Kalk Bay has several very nice accommodation establishments with great sea view rooms and delicious breakfasts.
