While staying at Shelly Point Hotel we explored the area of St Helena Bay. We were very impressed with the styles and designed of the houses of the area. This is the place to visit if you want to get away from the normal holiday destination. It has a different look and feel. Found very few places to eat, but I can strongly recommend the Coffee shop restaurant at the Nursery on the right coming into the bay. Tranquil and scenic setting with good menu and quality food served for us.

We were there in late January 2012 and now own a small cottage there. The livingstyle, pace and tranquility is priceless. Now we are even going to have the first "See Fees" on 28 December 2012 at the harbour...that is what I call the place to be!

I today visited St Helena Bay for the first time. I have always heard about St Helena Bay about 2 hours from Cape Town. I had to look at a plot and called on the SAPS to get directions. These men in blue took the time to escort us. I do not think you could ask for better service. The view is to die for. A peacefull and tranquil place with the essentials close by. I was pleasantly surprised that I got 8TA reception. Having driven 200 KM I had to buy fish, even though it was fried snoek & chips in the harbour and the taste was devine. I do regret that we could not buy a snoek to bring back home. Regards DE Dearham 082-256-7769.
