The Magnificent Eastern Cape Wild Coast
“If You Can Hear Your Name Being Whispered on the Wind, The Wild Coast is Calling You.”
Crawford’s Beach Lodge, on the magical Eastern Cape Wild Coast, is the perfect venue for exploring and discovering the delights of this spectacular area of South Africa. Here you’ll find fun and sun in abundance, as well as relaxation for families and couples alike.
Nestled in the middle of the beautiful Chintsa Bay shoreline, Crawfords is set amidst rolling, green hills and lush, sub-tropical beach forests overlooking the perennially-warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Crawfords offers you an opportunity to escape the humdrum while you explore the many beautiful treasures the Wild Coast yields to the jaded visitor. Treasures steeped in myth, legend, and history.
Spend your days strolling along our endless golden beaches and become entranced by the untouched natural beauty of the landscape surrounding you, while discovering exotic bird and fish life indigenous to the area.
This is the Wild Coast at its finest – malaria-free and just 42km from East London, the surf-side city famous for its Nahoon Reef. Far enough from the madding crowd, but close enough for unexpected emergencies.
It is also a perfect hide-away for eloping couples and honeymooners.
Something New to Discover Around Every Corner…
Those who journey to the Wild Coast will discover a diversity of attractions appealing to the broadest range of interests.
For outdoor enthusiasts, there is fishing from rock or beach, while the calm waters of the Indian Ocean also provide an ideal environment for swimmers, kayakers, and surfers. At certain times of the year, whale watching becomes a popular attraction, while dolphins and porpoises provide almost year-round entertainment.
The abundance of rivers along the Eastern Cape Wild Coast provide canoeists with plenty of opportunities to test their skills in a variety of conditions.
For those who prefer their leisure activities on dry land there are hiking and horse riding trails to suit all fitness and skill levels. 4×4 trails are also available and provide an ideal way to experience the rich cultural and wildlife heritage of this corner of South Africa.
The Wild Coast also presents photographers with spectacular scenery, abundantly-stocked game parks, awe-inspiring sunsets and sunrises, and fascinating views of the life and culture of the indigenous Xhosa people.
But perhaps you’d prefer to just soak up the sun and enjoy the amenities your Wild Coast accommodation offers. In that case, you cannot do any better than Crawfords Beach Lodge.
Welcome to paradise!
