The Wild Coast may be South Africa’s most spectacular and peaceful region with its rocky coastline, indigenous forests, secluded coves and many river mouths. All of this is on your doorstep at Umngazi - an award-winning family resort and spa. The thatched bungalows are situated amongst the indigenous gardens which provide the perfect setting for a totally relaxed holiday.

Each of our thatched bungalows is tucked away amongst indigenous flora, on a green hillside providing more views than most eyes can take in. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself perching on the doorstep for hours, simply watching the waves beyond while birds forage and bicker in the bushes around you. Our homely cottages will make you kick your shoes off, undo your top button and put your watch aside. For slightly breathless honeymooners, there are our tranquil, private bungalows perfectly positioned to help you forget all about wedding speeches and guest lists.

Of course you may want to be out most of every day. You could spend the whole time dozing by our riverside pool, or hanging out at Basil’s Bar where darts, snooker and tall stories will make you feel like a regular in no time. In our lofted hillside spa, we’re lucky enough to have dedicated and professional therapists who will gladly massage away your city stress to the soundtrack of nothing but breakers and bird calls. You might find relaxation in other ways; in the gym, on the courts or on a long amble down our pristine beach. For parents in need of a break, our dedicated caregivers are always on hand.

All meals are included with your booking. What’s more, we’re not shy with our portions - bigger is better. Kick off the day with an unhurried river breakfast as you loosely plan out another day filled with the sights and sounds of the hospitable Wild Coast. Later, sample our menu which offers up versatile meat dishes, fish so fresh it melts in your mouth and refreshingly good salads and veggies.

Mountain View Inn is situated between the mighty Umzimvubu River and the Mount Thesiger, just 5 km from the sea. The setting of Port St Johns is possibly the most dramatic in the country and the wildness of the coast caused many a shipwreck along this region of the coast.

Other activities in the area include canoe trips, horse riding, golf, and dolphin and whale watching. The sea is always close by, crashing onto the rocky shores which guard the secluded beaches.

The units contain a small kitchenette with a fridge, or there is an option to use the fully equipped communal kitchen. Meals are also available on request.

These two mountains form the heads at the river mouth that flows into the Indian Ocean. Port St Johns is really known for its fishing, especially grunter, salmon or cob and garrick.

Jungle Monkey is situated in the rugged and untouched heart of the Wild Coast, in South Africa’s Eastern Cape. Here, we are still impressed by what nature brings forth patiently and by the result of its rejuvenation. Port St. Johns is home to many rare species.

Go a little or a lot crazy at this brand new backpackers located midway between Port St Johns and Second Beach. The main house has dorms, a self-catering kitchen and spacious dining room. Scattered around the garden are a variety of cottages and apartments. Everyone who works here is slightly mad, but so friendly that you’ll soon find yourself playing and tea partying along day and night.

Spend sunshine hours swimming on Second Beach or exploring dense coastal jungle. The abundant bird life makes Port St Johns a haven for birdwatchers. Go for a hike or cast a line into the Indian Ocean. You can even catch the ferry across the Umzimvubu River, take a tour of local communities or go on a guided coastal hike. After a busy day, re-join the Mad Hatter madness in the pool room or bar before heading to the restaurant deck for a meal overlooking Pondoland’s rolling hills and thriving communities. The food served here is fit for a Queen of Hearts.

    Port St Johns South Africa

    Port St Johns Resort Accommodation
    Port St Johns is a small coastal town in South Africa known as the Jewel of the Wild Coast, offering true warmth and hospitality. The Wild Coast is a 250 kilometer stretch of coast, gaining its name by its inaccessibility and reputation for ship-crushing waves. Today the Wild Coast still remains relatively untouched, offering rich rustic experiences and adventures.

    The Wild Coast is the coastal area of the easterly Transkei region of the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. It perches alongside the massive Umzimvubu River which has carved its way through the ancient rocks leaving two 300 metre ramparts towering on either side.

    Port St Johns also offers a unique blend of cultural richness. The Xhosa culture, both traditional and modern, is always apparent. You can see a sangoma (traditional healer) strolling along in all his finery, hear the thumping sound of modern kwaito music from a furniture store, and dodge the ever-present mini-bus taxies. This vibrant noise and colour is contrasted with some crumbling reminders of a colonial history. In the streets you will hear Xhosa, Afrikaans and English as well as foreign languages from the steady stream of tourists seeking the unusual.

    Dense bush encroaches into the town at any opportunity and a short walk will take you into silent forests. The sea is always close, crashing onto the rocky shores which guard the secluded beaches. Bask on the unspoiled beaches or take part in one of the many eco-friendly adventure trails on offer. Port St Johns offers comfortable and authentic South African accommodation and some unique activities.

    Poenskop Beach to the north of Port St Johns is one of the most isolated. A few huts will be passed en route, but there is nothing except Africa out here. Fishing out of the rocks on the south side of the river produces good catches of Garrick and Kob in season.

    Eagles nest is the cliff that overlooks the town. A brisk walk will take you to its summit in about an hour. The Cape Herms Lighthouse is the property of Spoornet, and celebrated its 100th birthday in 2005.

    Silaka Game Reserve is about 6 km out of town where you can take a walk or game drive for beautiful game viewing and bird watching.

    First Beach is the fishing beach just at the river mouth. It has big rocks where people can climb on top when they are fishing. It is where the lighthouse is located.

    Dolphin and whales can be seen all year round, but are best seen during the months of June and July during the annual sardine run. Dolphins can be spotted all year round. Often playing in the surf at Second Beach. Porpoise and Bottle Nose dolphin are a common sight. Rare sightings of the more uncommon species such as Heavy side dolphin and Risso's dolphin happen out at sea, during the Sardine Run.

    Umngazi River Valley - The common belief is that Umngazi (Mngazi) means "Blood" but linguists believe that it refers to thorn trees in the valley, "Umga". This river also opens to the sea through a wide lagoon. It is popular with fisherman and water sports enthusiasts, and also superb for bird watching.
