St Francis Bay

St Francis Bay is an upmarket village which was developed around a marina since the 1960's. Over the years it has become a popular destination for the rich and wealthy who buy the expensive thatched roof houses overlooking the canals as second homes. The village is very unique as the original owner of the land dictated that any building built on the land had to be black and white. Thus all the houses are brilliantly white with either thatch or black tiled roofs.


  1. Wow! A very pretty place. Nice capture.

  2. Very pretty and quaint place. Wonder why the black and white stipulation...I would think black roofs would make the homes hard to cool. I'm not familiar with the climate...what's it like?

  3. Leighton Hullett was a man with vision.
