Explore, discover and enjoy a unique taste of rural Africa! Coffee Shack is a backpackers tropical paradise located right on the beach at the Bomvu River mouth on the Transkei Wild Coast, a deeply traditional area of South Africa where you'll experience a way of life far removed from Western culture. Coffee Shack has a reputation for being a fun, good-value hostel with excellent facilities and the most amazing, friendly staff. Most visitors rate Coffee Shack as a highlight of their SA tour...

Learn to surf at Coffee Shack with the cheapest professional surfing lessons on the planet: R20 for a 2 hour session! (That's about $2.00.)

Coffee Bay has nice point and beach breaks, and they also run day trips to Mdumbi, an amazing beach with a good point break for accomplished surfers. Dolphins are plentiful. If you're doing a surf trip, there are many other spots up and down the Wild Coast. Dave's surfed them all and is a good source of info on local conditions.
