The Location & Attractions
St Francis Bay is situated midway between Port Elizabeth and Plettenberg Bay on Southern Africa’s South Coast. Luxuriously appointed and overlooking the famed Jack Nicklaus designed links course, St Francis Golf Lodge is the perfect base from which to explore the many attractions of South Africa‘s fabled Garden Route and nearby malaria free game reserves.
This unique and exclusive paradise draws holiday-makers from all over the world to enjoy the glorious beaches lapped by the warm Indian Ocean, the excellent water-sport facilities, golfing, and a leisurely lifestyle. With the Lodge situated just 2 minutes from the beach, you can make an early morning walk or swim part of your daily holiday regimen before teeing off for the day. And when the challenge of the Links gets too much, take the opportunity to play any of the many acclaimed courses in the area.
There are loads of options to keep the adventurer occupied too. Spend a day 4x4ing in Baviaanskloof. Take the plunge off Storms River Bridge - the highest bungee jump in the world, or experience deep-sea fishing, or kite-sailing.
