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 Reviews
Kalk Bay is a vibrant little Harbour with the fishing boats docking .Kalky's has amazing fish and chips at very reasonable prices . There are a number of restaurants , interesting shops an ice cream parlour and tidal pool in walking distance from the accommodation . The accommodation faces onto a school and it was interesting to see the children coming and leaving school despite the noise of the children enjoying themselves before and after school .
