Kalk Bay and St James village is a strip of land between the Ocean and Table Mountain National Park and is a very special place to live. There are lots of young families with children. The children love to meet at the beaches, pools, and Lever street park. Parents learn to ride the waves in Muizenberg and a few years later the young children join them. Danger Beach in St James is a popular surfing beach.
There is no space for a squatter camp and therefore no taxi ranks.
Most of the village is sheltered from the dominant South East wind in the summer. We have the lowest rainfall on the Cape Peninsula. The Constantia Wine route is 15 minutes drive into Constantia.
The train ride to Cape Town is 55 minutes. The drive to Simonstown is 20 minutes. Drive to the city in 30 minutes out of rush hour. Take the train to the Soccer World Cup Stadiums in Newlands and Green Point.
There is a wonderful village atmosphere in the village of Kalk Bay where we have quaint, good quality shops and restaurants. Two golf clubs are within 10 minutes drive.
