Kalk Bay is a fishing village on the coast of False Bay, South Africa and is now a suburb of greater Cape Town. It lies in a beautiful setting, wedged between the ocean and sharply rising mountainous heights that are buttressed by crags of grey sandstone. A literal translation from the Dutch/Afrikaans name "Kalkbaai" is "Lime Bay".  The Bible Institute of South Africa is located here. The railway from the central business district of Cape Town to Simon's Town passes through Kalk Bay and in some places the line is only metres from the water's edge.
Many famous caves (with names such as 'Ronan's Well', after the Walter Scott novel St. Ronan's Well, and 'Free Drinks Saloon') are located in the mountains above the village. They are of importance to spaeleologists because they have formed in sandstone. Large cave systems are not often found in this type of chemically unreactive rock. Kalk bay is also home to the famous surf spot named "Kalk Bay Reef" it is known for its heavy barrels, and shallow reef. it is best surfed on a big South East swell and north west wind, in smaller swells low tide makes for better barrels.

Leave yourself time to wander around the second-hand shops, see the craft stores and art galleries, and the old china shops reminiscent of Aladdin's cave. Whilst there, take a walk down to the colourful harbour, where fish can be bought straight from the small fishing boats, and you may be lucky to see a seal alongside, hoping for a titbit. Then stop to refresh yourself at a quaint cafe, or lunch at one of the many good restaurants.
