Mpande Bay, Eastern Cape, South Africa


Most villages north of the Kei River are made up of fishermen’s cottages and the occasional backpacker accommodation. Port St. Johns and Coffee Bay are close by, making the Wild Coast Beach Cottage ideal for a family getaway. The Wild Coast is well known for hiking trails that pass through rural villages. There are also shipwrecks along the rugged coastline that will stir the imagination. A famous nearby landmark is “The Gates” at Port St. Johns.

You can visit throughout the year, the winter months also being blessed with fine weather and warm seas. The Sardine Run attracts visitors and causes a frenzy amongst the dolphins and predatory fish as it moves slowly north up the coast. There are great lookout points for whale and dolphin watching with Southern Right and Humpback whales being seen regularly. Offering excellent fishing grounds, this area makes a firm favourite for anglers and fishermen. Other Wild Coast activities include fly fishing, mountain biking, surfing, canoeing, horse riding, and bird watching.

Cows visit the beaches even though there is no grass or drinking water in order to sleep or just relax. These animals are easily approached and make great photographs. The Transkei is very unique and is loved by everyone who visits. From its people to its unforgettable beaches, waterfalls, and famous landmarks, the Transkei Wild Coast offers a wealth of things to see and experience. This coupled with a great climate, hot summers, and mild dry winters make it an ideal tourist destination. Whether you’re a young adventure-seeking globetrotter, a family looking for a new and exciting holiday, or a couple planning a romantic weekend, the Wild Coast Beach Cottage offers everything you need.
