The Hole in the Wall is an extraordinary, geological natural occurrence located approximately 8 km due south of Coffee Bay on the Wild Coast Region of Eastern Cape, South Africa. This landmark was created millions of years ago through the restless action of waves against sandstone and shale.
The rocky archway is large enough for a sailboat to cross underneath it with ease and it is reachable by foot just off the beach joining the rock formation to the land. It stands before the mouth of the Mpako River and is the source of many legends. In the Xhosa language, this area is called esiKhaleni, which means ‘the place of thunder’. It is because, under certain conditions, the waves slap the rocks with a resounding cracking sound, while it roars during storms. - Picture provided by Hole in the Wall.
