Kalk Bay: Cape Town’s little gem

If you’re planning a visit to Cape Town, South Africa, do yourself a favour and head to Kalk Bay for a day. I am a Cape Town local and every now and then, my friends and I like to act like tourists in our home town. That’s exactly what we did this past weekend as we ventured to the other side of Cape Town – the quaint seaside town of Kalk (pronounced almost like ‘Cork’) Bay.

We wandered along the main street’s shops, had a seafood lunch at the well-known Brass Bell Restaurant before heading to Kalk Bay harbour to visit the seals, jellyfish and the famous lighthouse. And yes, we all had our phones out snapping away the sights like it was the first time we’d experienced Kalk Bay because every visit is slightly different.

We ended off our day with a walk back up to Boyes Drive where our car was; which overlooks Kalk Bay and beyond. It was a rare sunny Autumn day giving us some much needed vitamin D before winter properly arrives.

“Once you have travelled, the voyage never ends… The mind can never break off from the journey.” – Pat Conroy

All five of our Kalk Bay clan are avid female travellers and it’s true – once you have travelled, the voyage never ends. We may not have been in an exciting new country this weekend but our own, somewhat extraordinary, journeys each day lead us on mini adventures like a fun day out and that’s what makes life so amazing.
