St James Beach Houses

St James is situated on the False Bay coast between Kalk Bay and Muizenberg.  It is an affluent small suburb of Cape Town with many exclusive properties on the slopes of the Muizenberg mountains and squeezed between the shoreline and the mountains with the scenic Boyes Drive capping the build line.  It is a long and thin suburb, and measures about 200m by 2 km. Its name derives from the early St James Catholic Church, built in 1880. Most of the suburb was built between 1910 and 1950, after the railway line was built connecting Cape Town to False Bay. It has a very famous St James tidal pool and a few excellent restaurant and is of course a very pleasant walk to it’s equally charming neighbour Kalk Bay.
