Discover local outdoor adventures
Discover the rustic romance and magic of the Wild Coast and enjoy a real Wild Coast Holiday in the Heart of Africa!
Do as much, or as little, as you like here. Adrenaline addicts will get their kicks by jumping from a sheer cliff face, or enjoying a mountain bike ride or hiking through trails with great vistas of the sea, always just a stone’s throw away. For the adventurist there are challenging guided excursions along interesting tracks, best suited to cattle and goats. If you prefer the pace to be steadier, then the guided 4x4 trips to nearby places of local interest, including the renown and geographical iconic nearby Hole-in-the-Wall, can also be arranged. Other popular activities include rock and surf fishing, diving and snorkelling.
When you’ve had your fill of beachcombing, swimming, surfing and boogie boarding – the sparkling pool in the resort gardens is always a refreshing alternative place to kick-back and relax in this tropical environment where you will find our dedicated well-stocked Beach Bar, and you will also find the ice-cream freezer in our little Beach Shop, which also stocks beach wear and holiday amenities.

Outdoor & Kids Activities
Outdoor enthusiasts will struggle to make choices on the wide range of activities available including Boogie Boarding, Surfing, Horse Riding, Recreational Fishing from the beach or a boat, Kayaking, Bird Watching, Guided Traditional and Cultural Tours, Vehicle Excursions such as Hole in the Wall, Mthatha River Mouth/Mapuzi Cliffs and Sundowner Trips, or just relaxing on a lounger at the Sparkling Hotel Pool.
The children are well taken care of, with facilities in the garden for them to play on, such as a jungle gym and trampoline. We offer a fun, activity-filled holiday for children of all ages. A childminder can be made available if you need a few hours to experience the more exciting areas of the coastline.
Particularly popular with honeymooners or couples. We will pack a basket filled with cheese, biscuits, savoury snacks and a selection of beverages of your choice, to enjoy when our guide takes you on an evening Sundowner trip, which overlooks the Ocean from the very top of the cliffs. This is a special place to unwind and take in the breath-taking beauty of the area.

Our Beach Bar is a firm favourite during the day and services the pool and beach areas. Many a cocktail is enjoyed in the midday sun or whilst taking in the evening hue. Our “Fluffy Duck” cocktail is a must and has been the cause of many a bather falling asleep in the sun.
Saturday Evening is our Seafood Evening! We are renown for this Seafood Extravaganza, which is so well prepared by our local chefs. Succulent oysters, butterfly prawns and large whole-baked fish with an array of other seafood, are some of the cuisine guests can enjoy whilst sitting on the deck and watching the waves break onto the shoreline below.
Weather dependent, Sundays in summer, is our Braai day. We offer a typical South African Traditional Braai, with our chefs cooking up all the firm favourites down at the Beach Bar.
