The Wild Coast is, undeniably, one of the world’s most spectacular areas. The best way to experience its raw, unspoilt beauty is to explore it leisurely, as opposed to whizzing past it in a car. Hiking from Port St Johns south towards Coffee Bay is challenging, but promises some of the most beautiful sights imaginable.
The official hike takes five days (four if your group is an especially experienced, fit group of hikers) and averages eight hours of walking a day. This route takes hikers on a stunning course through river gorges, along Port S Johns’ Third Beach, through the Mngazana Estuary, Silaka Nature Reserve’s dune forest, rural villages the Hluleka Nature Reserve and the Mfekatye River. Upon reaching Coffee Bay, visit one of the many backpackers for a refreshing cocktail or ice-cold beer. The beaches there are intimate and private, with warm waters and unforgettable scenery as the ideal backdrop.
This hike involves plenty of hills and mountains as well as crossing rivers and negotiating bush, so be prepared for some rough areas. However, the reward of the exquisite landscape and the friendly locals certainly makes this a very special hiking route.
