Picture waking up to a red sunrise, beside the Nenga river mouth on Coffee Bay main beach, watching surfers tearing the right-hand point break to pieces. "Welcome to paradise." Sugarloaf Backpackers is a friendly, clean and newly renovated establishment, and combined with the incredible Transkei Coast, makes us the perfect travel destination. Experience the wild amazing beaches, people, local tourist sites and communities.

Let the mouth-watering aroma of Zuzo’s freshly baked sugarloaf bread and ground coffee lure you back to Sugarloaf. Relax and enjoy your days on the beaches, around a fire pit sharing stories, quenching your thirst in the Tokoloshe Bar and lazing in the comfortable lounges and luscious gardens. Our popular ladies in the kitchen will prepare your scrumptious traditional breakfast and dinners, both of which are included in your bed price, that keep you coming back for more.

Surfing, swimming, diving, fishing, hiking and drumming are regular activities at Sugarloaf, so join the fun and beat to the rhythm of the Wild Coast in ultimate relaxation.

The bathroom facilities are dirty. The rooms were mosquito infected and then finally in the morning the flies took over. Generally dirty. Supper was not bad but breakfast was terrible. The bacon was off. Will not recommend to anybody!

It was our first experience of backpackers accommodation. We prepared ourselves for the worst but had all we needed at Sugarloaf. We stayed 5 nights and as a family we rather needed an on suite as it was a bit of a bother to walk to the toilets in the middle of the night in the rain. It is kept clean, most of the staff were friendly and helpful and the meals catered were really nice and tasty. Overall it was different but enjoyable.

There is a good atmosphere in this lodge. it is kind of basic but we enjoyed it very much. The surfing tour was a bit overpriced and the gear was not good. But because of the two nice owners we had a good time there.

What an experience! It was my first time ever staying at a backpackers, and it was great. Great people, friendly staff and an awesome place. The food was out of this world; best ever calamari and Xhosa bread, super yummy. I will definitely visit again.
