The Yacht Basin

Port St Francis was developed about 10 years ago, and was quite a visionary project. The harbour and yacht basin were blasted out of solid rock, which was piled up to form the harbour wall and breakwater. It has become a thriving little fishing harbour from which the chokka fleet operates, as well as a holiday paradise with private jetties for many of the villas built along the breakwater. This is the view from the reception of the Port Hotel, overlooking the swimming pool and Yacht Basin.
