Nestled virtually on the beach in a small magnificent bay between great towering cliffs and the sparkling Indian Ocean, the Ocean View Hotel is the Wild Coast coastal-country hotel which has earned the highly recommended accolades from the AA Travel Guides. It is the ideal place to meet new people and forge bonds of friendship that will draw you back to our bay time and time again. Accommodation is characterised by light and airy double and / or twin-rooms, most of which boast spectacular views of the sea. Spacious family units look out across the sub-tropical gardens. All rooms are very comfortably furnished and have en-suite bathrooms. Do as much, or as little, as you like here. Adrenaline addicts will get their kicks abseiling down a sheer cliff face, or enjoying a ride on our mountain bikes for hire through trails with great vistas of the sea always just a stones throw away. Also, for the adventurist there are challenging guided quad-bike excursions along interesting tracks best suited to cattle and goats. If you prefer the pace to be steadier, then the guided 4x4 trips to nearby places of local interest, including the renown and geographical iconic nearby Hole-in-the-Wall, can also be arranged. Other popular activities include rock and surf fishing, diving and snorkelling. When you’ve had you fill of beachcombing, swimming, surfing and boogie boarding – the sparkling pool in the hotel gardens is always a refreshing alternative place to kick-back and relax in this tropical environment where you will also find our dedicated pool-bar right there for any beverage of your choice, as well as a well stocked ice-cold Ola ice-cream fridge. If you prefer to rather relax on a quiet terrace, then the well shaded and elevated patio / veranda full-bar facility with its fantastic panoramic views of the ocean, and those gentle cooling sea breezes, with the rolling incoming breakers almost at you feet, is the place for you. Then of course there is our Wellness Centre where body massages, pedicures, manicures and facials are expertly done by trained professionals.

However, during peak holiday season, this comfortable facility doubles as a television lounge and games room. Come and stay with us! … You will have all the security and holiday pleasures you could ever want. Here you will paradoxaly find adventure, peace, and tranquillity, and very importantly, a quality of the food, with three full meals a day, that is just great!

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.

Set in the heart of Pondoland at the mouth of the insanely beautiful Mdumbi River, Freedom O'Clock offers comfortable accommodation with commanding views of the ocean, river, mountains, and Tshani point with its perfect right-hand wave and beach breaks. Surfing, fishing, canoeing, hiking and biking, snorkelling, bird watching and horse riding are just a few of the activities to busy your day, or just relax and take in the beautiful rural surroundings. For those who have not yet travelled to the Wild Coast it should be pointed out that you will be travelling in an under-developed region. The variety and quality of goods and services you may be accustomed to are not always readily available. Freedom O' Clock is set in a remote and primitive region, where even the provision of fresh water can not be taken for granted. Taking this into account we aim to achieve the highest possible standards and we feel it is best to make you aware of this. If you prefer luxury to comfortable living then the Wild Coast may not be for you.

Nestled in a beautiful setting of palms and tropical plants above the broad beach, Mazeppa Bay is characterized by its own island. Depending on the tide, this is sometimes only accessible by a quaint suspension bridge which joins the island to the main beach. Mazeppa derives its name from the ship, the Mazeppa. The ship was captained by a CJ Cato, on its way to Delagoa Bay from Port Natal in 1842. The Mazeppa was in search of a British man-of war to rescue the garrison, which had been besieged by the Boers. The captain steered the ship into what is now known as Mazeppa Bay for shelter and ran aground. Legend has it that its ruins are buried under the sand dunes at Mazeppa Bay. Mazeppa Bay Hotel was taken over by its current owners in 1995. The hotel itself was in quite a state of disrepair and much love and hard work was put into the hotel to make it what it is today. Mazeppa Bay Hotel offers a choice of family or double rooms as well as two honeymoon suites. Our rates are very affordable and include three home-cooked meals per day. We also offer a seafood dinner on Saturday nights and a mini seafood dinner on Wednesday nights, with favourable rates for children. In addition a baby-sitting facility is available for parents that feel they need a break. Hotel facilities include a tennis court, full-size snooker table, beach volley ball, table tennis, a trampoline for the children, DStv in the communal TV lounge, and two bars in which to enjoy sundowners after a long day on the beach and rocks. Mazeppa Bay has a 550 metre landing strip for light aircraft, as well as a helipad. The hotel also offers transfers to and from East London airport, which is a two-and-a-half hour drive away. There are many attractions at Mazeppa, the main one being angling due to the steep continental shelf. Mazeppa has much appeal for the game and shark fisherman and there is always a place to find shelter and a good fishing spot when the wind is blowing. Mazeppa also has its own registered boat launch off the beach. Tackle and bait are for sale at the hotel and there are also rods and reels for hire. The bird life at Mazeppa is quite spectacular and this can be experienced by going on one of the many walks around the hotel, the Manubi Indigenous Forest being a particular delight for bird and plant lovers alike. Other walks include the one across One Mile beach to the One Mile rocks at the end of the beach, where a patrol plane crashed during World War II while trying to make an emergency landing on the beach. Mazeppa Bay Hotel has kept its old-style charm which keeps families coming back generation after generation, where friends are made and people have a chance to take a step back from their busy lives to really relax with their loved ones. So take your shoes off, and relax. Come and experience our little piece of paradise.

Wild Coast South Africa

Wild Coast  Accommodation

The Wild Coast is a really great destination. Protected for years by limited road access, this area offers a combination of rural tranquillity, traditional African lifestyles and architecture, almost unbelievable scenery and fascinating flora and fauna with the opportunity to have a great beach holiday.

Hotels are spread out along the coast in the small settlements, almost all of which have their own road down from the N2 - so it's not easy moving from one coastal spot to the next. This is a bit of a problem, but the planned 'solution' may be even worse. A planned coastal highway would, admittedly, make it easier to get around for both tourists and those few locals who can afford cars but the main advantage would be that it would make it so much easier to transport the heavy metals that multinational corporations are just itching to mine in the to date untouched coastal dunes. So - our vote is we put up with somewhat tricky road access.

As for the hotels - some are great, some a little run down, but all offer fantastic views and, invariably, excellent and plentiful seafood. This is a wonderful family holiday destination and almost all the hotels have family rooms, babysitting services, children's programmes and children's meals. There is so much to do here and so many new friends to be made that most children are quite reluctant to leave at the end of the holiday, and many local families book their next year's accommodation as they leave for home.

Although the coastal hotels are wonderful, probably the best way of experiencing this area is to spend some time with the local people. There is a fantastic community project on the northern Wild Coast, which offers horse riding, hiking, canoeing and fishing from a beautiful tented camp overlooking a turquoise-blue lagoon. Here you can chat with the local people, learn how they live and go fishing with them, or foraging for wild foodstuffs. Or, of course, you can just lie around relaxing in beautiful surroundings.

The vegetation of this area is rather unique, as many of the biomes of South Africa come together here, so you will find some unusual plants in what botanists call the Pondoland Centre of Endemism.

The Wild Coast is renowned for its fantastic surfing and excellent fishing. There is potential for good diving but the conditions are not consistent and there is very little infrastructure. This all changes in July, though, when itinerant dive operators move into the area to take advantage of the sardine run, which is the greatest migration on earth, in terms of biomass.

The Wild Coast has long been a favourite hiking destination but the huts fell into disrepair in the 1980s and haven't been rebuilt. But - and this is a good but - you can hike between hotels. Now that's a win-win. You don't have to carry sleeping bags or food. You can even organise to get your luggage driven round for you and take only a day pack. That's styling.
Towns on the Wild Coast include the laid back Coffee Bay, the rather bustling Port St Johns and, right at its northern extremity, Port Edward.
