Kalk Bay gets its name from the lime extracted from sea shells and used for the construction of buildings in the 1800s. To do this fascinating little village justice, you'll need at least half a day. Leave yourself time to wander around the second-hand shops, see the craft stores and art galleries, and the old china shops reminiscent of Aladdin's cave. Whilst there, take a walk down to the colorful harbour, where fish can be bought straight from the small fishing boats, and you may be lucky to see a seal alongside, hoping for a titbit. Then stop to refresh yourself at a quaint cafe, or lunch at one of the many good restaurants.
I love Kalk Bay because it is the most friendly place in Cape Town the atmosphere is like home. I visit Cape Town ad-lease 3 times a year and Kalk Bay is the first place I would go to get a beautiful dish of fish and chips. My family knows already the day I land in Cape town that same day I will go and visit the harbour. My family just enjoys every moment we spent in Kalk Bay and have long talk about the place I go there now for 50 years and never get tired.

Kalk Bay is a fishing village on the coast of False Bay, South Africa and is now a suburb of greater Cape Town. It lies in a beautiful setting, wedged between the ocean and sharply rising mountainous heights that are buttressed by crags of grey sandstone. A literal translation from the Dutch/Afrikaans name "Kalkbaai" is "Chalk Bay" but it may well be that the original meaning was more closely related either to "calk" or "lime". Its incredible.
Enjoy the wonderful coffee shops and restaurants while watching the fisherman bring in their catches.
