The name 'Paradise Beach' says it all. This small Eastern Cape holiday destination truly is paradise, with the warm Indian Ocean sweeping onto long stretches of golden Eastern Cape beaches, surrounded by nature reserves and picturesque estuaries. Separated only by the Seekoeirivier (Hippopotamus River) lagoon, Paradise Beach is regarded as an extension of the ever popular Eastern Cape, Jeffreys Bay surfing mecca, where the 'super tubes' attract surfers from all over the world. Yet, while development and accommodation in Jeffreys Bay has mushroomed, Paradise Beach still maintains its 'sleepy town' atmosphere, with swathes of untouched land inhabited by an amazing variety of birds. Here life is easy-going, laid-back and mellow, governed by the sun, waves, and the dolphins and whales cruising the Eastern Cape coastline. Besides surfing, Paradise Beach offers many water sports such as kite boarding, windsurfing and jet-skiing. And of course, there's swimming, tanning or just taking a long leisurely walk on Paradise Beach. If it's not ideal beach weather, there's hiking in the Eastern Cape Seekoei Nature Reserve, home to a huge variety of bird species and wildlife, where you can also braai in the lapa, while taking in the abundant natural Eastern Cape beauty.

A large part of the Cape St. Francis conservation efforts are geared towards saving the threatened African Oyster Catcher, a large black wader with red legs and an orange-tipped red bill.

Guests visit to St Francis Bay

St. Francis Bay in the Eastern Cape lies at the mouth of the Kromme River, and is an ideal spot for whale watching. As a wildlife photographer, it's a delight to see the whales breeching in the Bay of St. Francis, and during September I rented a lovely self catering apartment in St. Francis Bay's residential marina development, known as "Little Venice," which overlooks the new Port St. Francis yacht harbour. These beautiful natural surroundings were ideal for my needs, and besides my daily whale watching trips to the Bay of St. Francis, there were many open-markets, restaurants and shops to explore.

I was delighted to discover that the St. Francis Bay area is surrounded by the Baviaanskloof mountain range, with many breathtaking trails through the fynbos - its peace and tranquillity is virtually 'Heaven on Earth.'

Besides the great St Francis Bay accommodation options, and among many other activities, the Eastern Cape's seaside village of St. Francis Bay offers excellent water-sports, and I have to congratulate myself, as for a first time kite surfer, I spent most of the time above the water skimming past the glorious St. Francis Bay beaches. That same evening I took a sunset cruise around the Bay of St. Francis, making new friends, and enjoying fresh calamari and chilled white wine.

It was a wrench to pack up and leave this enchanting place, but it was time to move on to nearby Cape St. Francis, Paradise Beach, Jeffreys Bay, and Oyster Bay (a hamlet to the west of Cape St Francis), in search of more adventure photo's for my portfolio.

For those looking for a 'rare gem', I personally recommend St Francis Bay in the Eastern Cape. Among the black roofed and white walled thatch homes so distinctive of the area, and the Mediterranean style units overlooking the yacht harbour, a wide variety of accommodation is available to suit all needs - Try a Google search using key words like accommodation in St Francis Bay or St Francis Bay bed & breakfast's, or self catering cottages and self catering apartments in St Francis Bay.......you're bound to find something suitable. For both locals and international visitors alike, a trip to this 'neck of the woods' is not to be missed
