Apart from the exquisite beach and a wide choice of sporting facilities there is more than just the sand, sea, sun and sport and Cape St Francis Resort is the perfect base from which to explore the entire St Francis region. Surrounded by nature reserves where wonderful examples of different species of fynbos grow in their natural environment within the seven biomes that exist in the 132 hectares of nature areas. Cape St Francis is a hiker’s wonderland with excellent hiking paths that meander through the nature reserves, at times emerging along the rugged coastline.

Seal Point and the historic Cape St Francis Lighthouse, the tallest masonry constructed lighthouse in South Africa, is home to a seabird rehabilitation centre run by SANNCOB, where all manner of seabirds, including the threatened African Penguin ,are rehabilitated before being released back to their natural sea habitat.

And after a full day of activities enjoying and exploring all the St Francis region has to offer, a sundowner cruise on the canals of St Francis Bay offers the perfect end to a day at the Cape St Francis Resort.

“We travelled to Cape St Francis Resort in August 2015. Really stunning location – biggest highlight was waking up and taking a walk on the beach which we could access directly from the villa. A place of many returns.”

Our port elizabeth guest house

We are situated in Newington Street, Richmond Hill on a quiet tree-lined lane, filled with historic and gracefully restored buildings. The peace of the picturesque neighbourhood belies its location in central Port Elizabeth where the heartbeat of the city pulses nearby and the main N2 highway that charters motorists in and out the Bay is but a few streets down.


The saying goes that in Port Elizabeth nothing is more than 15 minutes away and with Richmond Hill this most definitely rings true.
