About Crawford's Beach Lodge and Cabins

Crawford’s Beach Lodge, set along the magical Wild Coast, offers rustic luxury accommodation for the most discerning of travellers and conference organisers, who are looking for privacy, peace and tranquillity.

Crawford’s is nestled in the middle of the beautiful Chintsa Bay on the Wild Coast, surrounded by rolling hills, lush tropical beach forests and overlooks the warm Indian Ocean. A romantic getaway to explore the many beautiful treasures the wild coast has to offer. Spend your days walking on our endless golden beaches and be absorbed by the untouched natural beauty of the landscape while discovering new exotic bird and fish life indigenous to the area.

Our location is malaria free. We are approximately 42km from East London, far enough from the maddening crowd, but close enough for emergencies.


Luxury Suites
Crawford’s Beach Lodge offers 20 luxury suites which consist of double and twin bedrooms all en-suite and each with its own private balcony, overlooking the sea. The suites are fully equipped with bar fridge, DStv, coffee and tea making facilities, with air conditioning or fans and fully equipped kitchenettes.

Bar and Restaurant

Get acquainted with your fellow guests by interacting in our lounge, having a drink in the bar or merely floating around the lawn under the tropical Khamanga palms. The Crawford’s pride themselves with the cuisine they have on offer; delicious and nutritious homemade meals. All meals are served in the main dining room overlooking the sea and are set on a buffet basis, offering fine dining with a wide variety.

Conference Facilities

The perfect spot to have your conferences. We have three conference facilities, fully carpeted and air conditioned with breakaway rooms. A short distance from East London (± 42km’s) and the airport.

One can enjoy the splendid beauty and tranquility, at this ideal getaway destination. Even the most discerning conference organiser will be pleasantly surprised to find a wide range of facilities available in such unique surroundings.

The stay was fantastic. The food out of this world. The staff was so friendly and helpful. And above all: I forgot my sun hat in the room and the staff...
