Ocean View Hotel - COFFEE BAY
P.O. Box 566 Umtata 5099
to the scenic splendour of the rugged Wild Coast that makes Trennerys Hotel the perfect destination for the wild at heart – a place that abounds with the peace and tranquillity of paradise… Situated at Qolora Mouth, just a short drive north of East London, the hotel still maintains its old-world charm and its unique, South African hospitality.
Set in idyllic Transkei surroundings, views from the hotel range from the stunning Wild Coast beaches to the green and lush, tropical vegetation. Close to the beach and with plenty to do – from hiking and cycling, to fishing and canoeing – Trennerys Hotel is everybody’s first-choice, affordable family getaway.
Set on rolling green hills above the beautiful and pristine Mdumbi Beach (which is one of the best surf spots along the Wild Coast, and indeed, the coast of South Africa), Mdumbi Backpackers is a laid back, rustic and relaxing getaway for all travelers and eco-friendly tourists.
Mdumbi Backpackers is well integrated with their community, and most of the activities - such as kayaking around the islands on the beautiful Mdumbi Lagoon, horse riding and hiking trail guides, fishing, etc. - are directly run by the local villagers.
Nqileni is home to a vibrant rural community where times have sometimes been tough; migrant labour has taken its toll on family structure and health service & education have been difficult to access. But in spite of these challenges, the typical scene at sunset is children singing beautiful harmonies as they walk up the hills together on their way home, Mama’s laughing together as they collect water from nearby springs while men and boys effortlessly herd their cattle home to their kraals. The Xhosa traditions are strongly adhered to and are respected by Traditionalists and the Religious alike.

Geckos Guest House is situated in Coffee Bay on the scenic, rugged and unspoiled “Wild Coast” on the eastern seaboard of South Africa. We provide private, clean, comfortable accommodation in double en-suite rooms at very affordable rates with friendly and personal service. A full breakfast is included in your daily rate. Evening meals can be provided on request, or you may choose to eat out at one of the restaurants in the area. A self catering option is also available.
A short walk from the guest house will take you to the beautiful beaches, or to breathtaking views of the ocean and bays from the hilltops surrounding the village, where you may be the only one around to be at peace with yourself and nature.
Hikers can enjoy a variety of pathways traversing either beach or natural forest or cliff tops overlooking the Indian Ocean, where one may spot dolphins or whales on their daily journeys. Local guides are available for hire to show the best routes and advise on local customs.
The famous “Hole-in-the-Wall” is a short drive away, or a few hours hike for the more energetic, but well worth the visit to view this natural rock phenomenon.
Bathers, surfers or sun worshippers will appreciate the sandy beaches and waves where there is safe bathing and surfing; and for those who enjoy surf fishing – you won’t be disappointed.
Come to Coffee Bay and see for yourself!

Whilst sitting on the deck, feet up, watching the sun set, gin and tonic in hand, aaaah! What could be better? The coals on the braai should be just about ready for those scrumptious steaks that you brought with you. Prawns and calamari are for another night, maybe with some good friends who will bring along the wine. There is nothing better than sitting on the deck, on a perfect evening, not a breath of wind, spending quality time with one another and or your family and friends. After a good meal, good conversation, gently work your way to bed for an early evening...or late! These are times that you will always cherish.
Waking up is another experience. It gets light early and somehow you just can't stay in bed. The sunrise is so beautiful with the birds singing and the Hornbills
watching your every move. The view takes your breath away, making you realize that Morgan Bay is a truly special place to be. Mmmmmmm, smell the bacon sizzling under the grill, with your eggs waiting to be cracked open and gently eased into the pan. "Will that be one egg or two this morning love?" I am sure all of the above rings a bell and is a pleasant reminder of what holidays are all about.
All bedding is supplied, with towels.
There is a satellite tv in the main bedroom, which allows you to watch your favourite programs. Please bring your decoder and DSTV card. The main bedroom has a lounge/reading area, giving you a choice of staying in bed or relaxing in the chill-out area.
