Coffee Bay hotels

Coffee Bay is a remote village situated on South Africa's "wild coast", about an hour's drive from Mthatha, and close to the "Hole in the Wall". Roads can be a bit worn leading one to need to drive on what's left of the road, rather than always on the left of the road!

We were delighted to discover this blog entry by Brittan Smith on her visit to Coffee Bay. Like many travellers to the area, she took the Baz Bus from Durban to Mthatha and a shuttle through to Coffee Bay, where they stayed at the Coffee Shack. At Coffee Bay she took the "world's cheapest surfing lesson", ate traditional Xhosa meals, visited a Sangoma and saw the Hole in the Wall (3 hour hike). Here's a couple of her photos:
