We were at the lodge during Christmas, a very busy time of the year. The beach and lodge did not feel crowded. The lodge was full but still very quiet since it is small.

What a surprise ....this place is a gem... To be so close to the sea is just fantastic. We were lucky enough to see dolphins 3 mornings in a row while we were having breakfast. Will recommend Sea Otters Lodge should you plan a trip in Port Elizabeth.
