Kalk Bay is easy to get to whether by car or with public transport. From the airport follow the N2 towards Cape Town and when you see an exit for the M3 direction Muizenberg, take it. Follow the M3 into the M4 and from Muizenberg follow the coast road south past ST. James to Kalk Bay: Or if you prefer follow the scenic Boyes Drive and once in Kalk Bay take the first left into Anderson Raod and then the second left into Gatesville Road - This is an excellent location to whale spot from as well.
Kalk Bay is a bastion to the Cape's sea-faring past. First visited by Simon Van Der Stel in the 17th Century one can't help but feel you've traveled back in time, worlds away from the high-rise hustle of Cape Town. Named after the chalky lime stone deposits found in the area by the Dutch in 1806 Kalk Baai (Chalk Bay) soon became a busy little fishing village. A railway line in 1883 brought with it more fishermen and tourists in their scores. In 1895 a municipality was founded and non-fishing families were encouraged to settle in the area. This developed into a tight knit bustling seaside village and much of everything that makes it special remains today.
