Under the expert care of the new owner/management team of Ian and Lynn Crawford (of Crawford's Beach Lodge fame), Ocean View now has more to offer than ever before!
Ocean View Hotel - COFFEE BAY
P.O. Box 566 Umtata 5099
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 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.
