About Things to do in Coffee Bay

Coffee Bay can be found on the Wild Coast, in the former Transkei, 200km north of East London along the N2, 80km down the coastal road to the Wild Coast. The Wild Coast got its name from the sailors of the 1700s and 1800s, who considered it as one of the most treacherous bits of coastlines in the world, and the long list of ship wrecks makes intriguing reading. To this day it is still one of the most beautiful and untouched sections of coastline in the world, due to its remote and difficult assess.
