This is one of South Africa's most exciting and unexploited areas along the Indian Ocean. The entire region is ideal for walking, with many caves, bays, shipwrecks, cliffs and capes to explore.
One of the must see places in this area is the "Hole in the Wall", a geological marvel situated approximately 10km southwest of Coffee Bay. Hiking trails are abound in the area, the famous Wild Coast Hiking Trail being one. Southern right whales visit this region between May and November to calf. Visitors can see them from the shore or a boat playing with the dolphins. Scattered about in the foothills and beyond, Xhosa homesteads are often grouped around a cattle kraal, usually situated on the ridge of a hill.
Places like Coffee Bay are popular among surfers, anglers and shell collectors. A misty and untouched bay, it offers excellent fishing as well as spectacular walks through coastal bush that is full of bird life. Snorkelling and scuba diving can be done as well at many sites. Divers and treasure hunters find endless excitement in searching for coins, crockery, cannons and other relics from numerous old shipwrecks along the coast.
The Wild Coast can accommodate with ease both the nature lover and adrenaline seeker as well as couples with children looking for that perfect family holiday.
