About Us

Waking to the sound of waves crashing on the beach below; enjoying the view of the surfers making the most of the waves while you sip on a steaming cup of freshly brewed coffee on your private deck; and then slipping into the adjacent rim flow pool for a refreshing pre-breakfast swim. This is the kind of idyllic beach life that awaits visitors to The Sands @ St Francis.

Set in the exclusive enclave of St Francis Bay, the luxury getaway of choice for many of South Africa’s who’s who, as well as a favourite playground for sun and sea seeking holidaymakers. The Sands @ St Francis is just minutes from the village’s centre, which makes it an ideal setting.
