Kalk Bay Accommodation

Kalk Bay began life as a small fishing village located on the coast of False Bay. Over the years, as Cape Town expanded, Kalk Bay was absorbed and is now a suburb of the greater Cape Town Municipality. Kalk Bay or ‘Kalk Baai’ is derived from the Dutch language, meaning “Lime Bay”. The name derives from the large deposits of mussel shells found in the area, which were burnt by early settlers to make lime for construction. Today, visitors and residents can find original lime kilns and roasted mussel shells along the coast.

Kalk Bay operates as a lively working harbour, and is one of the most popular tourist destinations along the sea board. Take a visit out to Kalk Bay and you’ll find the Main Road brimming with boutique shops, antique stores, coffee shops, restaurants and art galleries.

While being in the vicinity of a fishing village, it is pertinent you try out the local cuisine. If you’re looking for ocean-fresh seafood, the harbour is one of the best places to get your supplies from – with local fisherman offering up ‘straight off the boat’ fish. Alternatively, head to Kalkys for some deliciously fried hake and chips. Adjacent to the harbour is The Brass Bell – a favourite hotspot for locals. The views at the eatery are unparalleled with the ocean right on their doorstep; while the menu offers up good quality dishes.

Kalk Bay is an outdoor hub of action boasting some of the best reefs in Cape Town for surfers, and is also a popular fishing spot for locals. If you’re more of a cave-dweller or have a taste for adventure, explore Kalk Bay’s many interesting caves. A popular spot for whale-watching, tourists flock to Kalk Bay between the months of May and October, and view the Southern Right Whale gracing our shorelines.

Kalk Bay
Kalk Bay is one of our favourite places to visit, with a great range of restaurants and shops to keep us entertained - even when the weather is bad. In fact, Kalk Bay seems even prettier when the weather is wild. We like to book accommodation in town, so that we can enjoy our sightseeing in the small town centre on foot, without the hassle of finding parking or worrying about driving after a dinner with wine. A very atmospheric and picturesque place to visit any time of year, and close to many other beauty spots. I haven't tried it yet, but one day I would like to visit from Cape Town using the train, which conveniently stops just outside the lovely Brass Bell!
