About Kalk Bay Books

Described as the book shop with the best view in the world, Kalk Bay Books is a gathering place for locals and visitors alike, who browse and buy books, share a glass of wine or two with visiting authors, and gather for new book launches or discussions.

The leather sofa invites customers to spend some time considering the books on offer, and to catch up on international book news with the New York Review of Books and other reading matter provided for their interest.

One of the best independent book stores in South Africa, Kalk Bay Books is situated in the fishing village of Kalk Bay, 30 minutes drive from the centre of Cape Town. Not only do we offer a hand-selected range of fiction and non fiction books, but we swear by books as the answer to the world's problems. We hope to meet you in the book shop soon!
