Kalk Bay offers a unique and charming experience unlike anywhere else in Cape Town. It might look like a sleepy seaside village but in fact it’s buzzing with boho-vintage stores, art and antique galleries, exceptional bookstores, and some of the best coffee spots on the peninsula. Stopping here during a Cape peninsula tour is a must. Take in the ocean and mountain views, the brightly colored fishing boats in the real working harbor, and order a coffee and chocolate croissant while you browse the main street. You might even spot a seal or two taking a sun break – and if you want to fit in with the locals have a sunrise dip in the ocean at the Dalebrook tidal pool.
