Cape Town – Exploring False Bay

image

St James beach is a small, but very popular beach. The railway line passes right next to the beach.

We stopped at Kalk Bay for a walk and a cup of tea. The Kalk Bay harbour is very busy with fishermen selling their catches.

There is a very interesting China shop in Kalk Bay.

image

China of all descriptions. Imagine dusting all of this!

image

We left Kalk Bay early as we didn’t want to get stuck in the traffic caused by the roadworks. We travelled towards the beautiful Hottetots Holland mountains. We were on our way to Gordon’s Bay harbour for lunch.

We had calamari at the Thirsty Oyster which is inside the harbour.

image

After lunch we drove along the coastal road around False Bay.

image

The views are incredible.

image

We went past places with fascinating  names like Hangklip,  Rooi Els, Koggelbaai and the Steenbras River mouth.  We went as far as Betty’s Bay.

On the way back we stopped at Koggelbaai to admire the long white beach.

We travelled back to Cape Town after having spent a day exploring False Bay.
