Coffee Bay, South Africa - PICTURE - Fabulous Travel guide

One of the best things about Coffee Shack – aside from the amazing location up on the cliffs – is the array of activities to choose from. There’s a 9km trek to the Hole in the Wall, cliff jumping into the Mpuzi River and a visit to a local village.

There’s also super cheap surf lessons and regular sundowners up on the cliffs. If you like open fires, drum circles and plenty of drinking games then you’ll never want to leave.
