Kalk Bay PierKalk Bay is one of my favourite places in Cape Town. It’s unpretentious, friendly, and no matter what your budget, there’s something there for you.

I spend quite a bit of time there, whenever I can, either having drinks on the sea-facing couches at Polana (their Jam Jar is good value for money, and this is an excellent spot for winter afternoons), wandering along the pier checking out the fish market or munching delicious fish and chips at Kalky’s (cheap and cheerful, with no aspirations of grandeur – I love it).

Recently I’ve noticed posters for the ‘Kalk Bay Fish Fare‘, coming up this weekend. I’ve not yet been, but I think, in the spirit of adventure that seems to have overtaken me this year, I shall give it a try!

The poster doesn’t say much, but I did find some details on Kfm’s Community Diary:

Kalk Bay Fish Fare – Variety of stalls selling tasty fish curry, fish kebabs, mussell chowder, crayfish curry, salmon rolls, herring, fish cakes, fish & chips, calamari fried, braaied yellow tail, seafood potjie, prawns, pickled fish to mention a few. Also home made puddings or cakes, tea and beer garden. Fun for the kids: giant alligator jumping castle, tombola, lucky dip, face painting and more.

The Kalk Bay Fish Fare runs from 11am to 6pm this coming Saturday (3 March). Entrance is a mere R2. There’s more info on Kalk Bay itself here. I would suggest getting there rather early – parking is pretty limited at the best of times.
