St James, historically known as ‘millionaire’s mile’ is making its comeback as one of the trendiest places to stay in Cape Town. The area still boasts the traditional colourful Victorian bathing boxes and grand old houses. 

Fresh fish can be brought from the local fishermen and the harbour itself offers excellent seafood restaurants from rustic local cuisine to fine dining experiences.

Mediterranean in style, the main road is a hive of novel antique shops, delicatessens, boutiques and art galleries a mere three minutes walk from the Manor House and, across the road, you will find the famous tidal pools and swimming beaches. 

A favourite pastime is the early morning swim in the wind protected, warm waters of St James.

St James also offers interesting walks along the historic promenade and up the imposing mountains. 

Perhaps the biggest attraction is the land based whale watching in season. They appear literally meters from the shoreline and can be seen clearly from The St James Retreat.
