– Welcome to Coffee Bay and the Wild Coast, experience the magic.-
There is a fuel station at Ncwanguba Store that carries both petrol and diesel. It is about 20kms from Coffee Bay.
The shops in Coffee Bay only stock basic essentials for the most part. You can find basics like pasta, sauces, flour, bread, eggs, and basic toiletries as well. There are several small shops or a slightly larger one called Bomvu River Store with plenty of snacks, canned foods, cool drinks, and other sundries. There is a major store as you come into Coffee Bay that sells everything else that you can not find in Coffee Bay. We recommend doing your shopping there as you come into Coffee Bay.
There are a couple of ways to travel to Hole in the Wall. You can hike, ride quads, or drive. Coffee Bay’s accommodations are stacked with experienced and knowledgeable guides to hike the distance with you. On our adventures page you can find the contact information for these guides, as well as the quad tours. The drive is quite bumpy and is best done in a 4×4 vehicle. It can be accessed without one but can be risky. As far as directions go there are signs all along the road for you to follow, and since the hike is done mostly not near the road, it is best to hire a guide.
The main road to Coffee Bay from the N2 is completely tarred. There are plenty of potholes and animals in the road along the way that make driving at night very dangerous and not recommended. Once in Coffee Bay there are other roads that lead you to Hole in the Wall and Mapuzi but are best accesed by a 4×4 vehicle.
