Kalk Bay is a quaint village on the coast of False Bay, South Africa. Primarily known for its reputable name in the fishing industry, Kalk Bay has grown to attract a number of tourists and locals alike, seeking out the glorious South African sun while exploring this interesting area, which is exactly what I did on a long overdue mini-break.
The main road is lined with an assortment of eateries, fashion boutiques and vintage stores, which prove to be a fashion-seeking foodie’s dream come true! In additional to these stores, is an abundance of vintage items at the local vintage shop as well as to be found at the market held on the main road during certain months of the year.
For those looking to experience that which the town is known for; the Kalk Bay pier provides an excellent opportunity to do just that – fishing! Even if you don’t manage to catch anything, it is more than likely that you will spot a seal or two. These seals have seemly been trained by the local fisher men and readily perform their tricks for onlookers. The pier is also home to a number of informal traders who display their beautiful crafted products all along the walk way, which further enhances the rich vibrancy of the area – as if the breath-taking views were not enough!
Kalk Bay is just one of the towns that makes up the False Bay area, and while visiting the area we passed through a number of the towns, including Simons Town and Muizenburg amongst others, all of which offer different points of interests worth a visit!

About my look:
Channeling my inner island girl; I paired this off the shoulder gypsy top with a pair of high-waisted black jeans and my romantic lace-up flats. I finished my look with a vintage boxy handbag and dainty jewelry.
