Be sure to make your way all the way down to the entrance of the main Port Hole and pop in to Indigo Moon whether it's for craft beer or coffee or some delicious seafood not to mention the gourmet hamburgers which are to die for. The views are breathtaking. The service is great and the chef Simon pays personal attention to his meals making sure his clients stay 100percent satisfied.

Be sure to make your way down to the Port for a superb experience.

A beautiful harbour town in the Eastern Cape with the best calamari in the world, and according to surfers, also the best waves.

You could stay in the harbour for days and you would not get tired, as every minute is somewhere action and activity. Very pleasant to watch fishermen or workers alike.

We recently spent 7 days staying at timeshare close to the Port. What a fantastic little Port with some great restaurants. Awesome to see the "chokka" boats all lined up and the sea otters and birds. Did however notice on a couple of occasions a strong smell of diesel and tell tale sheen on the water- hope they monitor this so as to not affect the sea life.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our Port.

The Harbour Master monitors the harbour very closely and takes immediate action. we are all extremely careful about ensuring our wildlife are safe.

Didn't feel very authentic I suppose is the only way I can describe it. It's like a toy town. 'Rich white folk' swan around being served by 'poor black folk' who live in the township 1km a way. Doesn't feel very progressive and coming from London and being used to (& loving) a diverse and inclusive culture this just felt weird.

We were following the beach walk and ended up in the port. So pleased we did as there was so much going on. The Calamri Capital of South Africa we found out!
Loved the whole development with all the walkways around the houses into the main port area. Very tastefully done remiscent of a Mediterranean style habour.
A selection of Restaurants and cafes there and plenty of safe parking we noticed whilst you watch the busy port activities.
Definately worth a look.

Visited on cloudy day so thought we would visit. Busy little fishing harbour. Worth a visit to watch the comings and goings.
