Activities in and around Coffee Bay

Coffee Bay is a small rural seaside village located on the “real” Wild Coast of South Africa.

There is no commercial centre and there are no malls, cinemas, beachfront shops and restaurants

– no bank or even an ATM – so don’t expect to be entertained by typical city attractions!

It’s a place where people come to experience the unspoiled beauty of the natural coastline ,

just to “chill”, or to participate in activities ungoverned by technology.

~hiking to a number of beautiful spots along the coast


~exploring rock pools with the children

~lazing on the beach and soaking up the sun
