The Lodge on the Beach
Originally a farmhouse, the Lodge on the Beach was built in 1929 and is one of Port St Johns' oldest, quaintest buildings. Set in a lush subtropical garden, we are a 3-bedroomed guesthouse offering accommodation right on the beach
, with a spectacular view across the bay. We also organise activities ranging from gentle guided walks to extreme mountain biking.
We look out over The Gap, a geological feature which formed as a result of Continental Drift. A slice of headland suddenly sheared off the African continent during a prehistoric upheaval, and over the ages the 30-metre gap has almost filled up with rocky debris. It has an accompanying Blowhole near its base, which shoots a jet of water 20 metres into the air. Both are iconic Wild Coast scenic attractions.
We are located on Second Beach, which is about 5km from the Port St Johns town centre. It's a memorably eccentric place - definitely not what you'd experience at home - and many have regarded it as a highlight of their holiday.
The Lodge is set in the indigenous forest adjacent to Silaka Nature Reserve, overlooking the Bulolo River, with magnificent views of the Indian Ocean and beach. With only 3 guest rooms, each of which is sea facing and with private bathroom, your stay at The Lodge is guaranteed to be relaxing, leaving you feeling revitalised and energised.
