About Milkwood on Main

Milkwood on Main is ideally situated along the unspoilt coast of the Eastern Cape in the tranquil village of Kidds Beach. It is the idyllic getaway for business executives, family holidays or tourists.

We are positioned within walking distance from the Kidds Beach coastline which boasts amazing sunsets, the perfect setting for slow strolls along the beach. Spend the day tanning and relaxing on the beach while the kids build sandcastles and splash around in the waves. But if the rolling waves are not your cup of tea, then dip into the calm tidal pool or the lazy Mcantsi River, which meets the Indian Ocean a stone’s throw away from Milkwood on Main.

The river also offers great fishing spots and pleasant canoe trips with peaceful places to stop and have a picnic.

If business is your reason for visiting the Eastern Cape, then Milkwood on Main is perfect for your stay, being just 18 km from the East London airport, yet it is a peaceful escape from the daily rat race.
