Kalk Bay Harbour is a lively, picturesque harbour. With beautiful views of the mountains in the distance, the blue, outstretched ocean in front of you, and the refreshing sea breeze – it’s easy to understand why the harbour is a must-see. The harbour is one of the last working fishing harbours in the Cape Peninsula, and is located about 30 km from Cape Town.

There’s always something going on at the harbour. You can see the fishing boats docking about midday and fish traders appraising their catch of the day. On a sunny afternoon stroll, you can watch seals playing in the water, swimming, or sunbathing. You can see seabirds all along the way, and you might even be able to spot whales during whale-watching season!

If you get hungry, you can buy fresh fish from the fishermen. However, if you prefer just to order your food already done, you can also visit one of the restaurants and pubs nearby. There you can look out at the stunning ocean views while relaxing with a meal. Polana is a must- stop, they offer some of the best seaside fish and chips in Cape Town! Or for a truly local experience, visit Kalky’s on the harbour side.
