Experiences in the Eastern Cape


Adventure to be had in the Eastern Cape

Learn to Surf 

Surfing is high on the agenda in Coffee Bay. Coffee Bay has pristine beaches that cater for all levels of surfing. The Indian Ocean provides us with warm, blue subtropical conditions, with both point and beach breaks. It’s an ideal place for beginners as it generally offers a gentle smooth ride right breaking wave, whilst the beach break can be more variable with waves suited for all levels of surfing. Coffee Bay enjoys consistent waves, and it is rare to find a day where there isn’t a wave to be surfed.

If the waves are not your thing, try your hand at sandboarding! There are endless sand dunes right on the doorstep of Sandcastle Luxury Villa in Wesley, Eastern Cape.

The Hole in the Wall

The Hole in the Wall is an extraordinary natural arch. The formation consists of a tidal island containing a natural arch that takes the form of a hole pierced through a wall of sandstone and shale by the waves of the sea located at the mouth of the Mpako River, about 8 km due south of Coffee Bay.

Traditional Life in Coffee Bay

Less and 300 people live in Coffee Bay, and life there remains traditional. 

Take a walk into the hills with one of our local guides and experience a way of life far removed from yours. You will get to see the sacred pools, get your face painted with clay and have a traditional Xhosa meal at a Mama’s hut. This is a genuine experience where you will get to interact with the locals, ask questions and learn a lot.
