The Canals

50 years ago, Leighton and Ann Hulett flew from their home in Natal to Port Elizabeth in Leighton’s old Tiger Moth and travelled to Cape St Francis in an old ex-army jeep. They fell in love with the area with its magnificent stretch of beach, the sheltered bay with its blue waters, rolling dunes and verdant growth. So they bought it. It was the Leightons whose vision to create a village resulted in the uniform style of thatch houses which make the place so picturesque and distinctive. He also had the vision to establish a system of canals between the beach and the mouth of the Kromme river. These are now bordered by luxurious thatched homes, and are considered prime property.
