From Shelly Beach I drove to Port Saint Johns, entering “The Wild Coast”. I had heard mixed comments about the Wild Coast. Ones saying that it was an amazing place and others that it wasn’t really worth going to and that I had to drive through the Transkei, with bad roads full of potholes and loose cattle roaming free everywhere and that I’d get stuck in traffic jams driving through the townships. And that it wasn’t very safe.
I decided to check it out for myself. And I agree with the first comment I wrote. The Wild Coast is definitely worth going to and staying there for at least a few days. That is if you’re into beautiful rugged landscapes, walking through Xhosa villages, surfing, fishing, laying on the beach, disconnecting from the rest of the world and reading a book, walking up hills in the coast and spotting whales and dolphins that hang around in the bays, etc. All that and more in the Wild Coast.
