African Pride The Sands


... is located the town of St Francis Bay in the Sunshine Coast West area of the Eastern Cape in South Africa.

+ beach front plot
+ superb ocean views
+ quiet residential suburb
+ individually themed rooms
+ luxurious public areas
+ great pool
+ excellent food
+ direct beach access
+ low visitor volume

Set above the southern end of the main village beach, this impressive beach house contains extensive and luxurious public areas under a high thatched roof, plus five very nice guests suites with views out across the ocean. Breakfasts and dinners are served in the small restaurant.

Activities in this sleepy seaside settlement include walks along the beach, whale-watching July to October, surfing, sailing and golf.

- potholed access road
