Cape St Francis is an unspoilt coastal holiday village surrounded by nature parks and miles of magical beach. The lovely Cape St Francis Lighthouse or Seal Point Lighthouse was built in 1878 to warn ships of the dangerous reefs that stretch more than a kilometre out to the sea. It is the tallest masonry tower on the South African coast and stands at a height of 27.75 m. Next to the lighthouse there is a marine bird rehabilitation centre which provides treatment and temporary care to injured, displaced or oiled marine birds. The prevailing wind ensures good surfing, which is why the famous Seal Point surfing spot is located here. There are many nature trails that offer delightful, non-strenuous walks.
The closest airport is in Port Elizabeth and St Francis Bay is 7 km and has various shops. Jeffreys Bay and the famous super tubes surf spot is 25 km away.
