Owner description: Port St Francis is the only privately owned working harbour in SA. Come see what how the chokka fleet operates while enjoying a meal at any of the restaurants. Accommodation available. Beautiful views of the ocean.

A thriving fishing port it seems. The people are warm and friendly which isn’t surprising since they live in paradise.

Great view of a working harbour as the Chokka Boats prepared for sea.
The port is small but has an interesting history of fishing for calamari or 'Chokka' which set out to fish overnight with bright lights which attract the 'Chokka' prey.

Good food. Little long to service. Busy over Festive Season but prices were better that expected. Nice surprise.

Worth a visit to eat fresh seafood and watch the sea. Beyond that, there’s not much there. The harbour itself has some lovely apartments overlooking it and it’s a working port, which is nice to watch
