Port St Johns very strange and unique place, and to get even average accommodation is not easy. Lots of traps in this little rustic town.
We drove from place to place and ended up with Amapondo Backpackers, stayed for 5 nights and we were really happy with the place, wonderful staff and view.
We stayed in the Chalets in the back and it was a different experience to a 5 star hotel, more rustic but more than adequate for an adventure holiday.
The bar area is great even for kids and we enjoyed the barman Mr Clint even thou he took all our money on poker night.
If you have a family and you can get one of the chalets I won’t look any further.
Just don’t go fishing in Poenskop you will be harassed from when you stop on the beach until you leave. 3rd and 2nd Beach is better for fishing.
And try to bring everything with you so that you don’t need to do any shopping in town because this is not Camps Bay Spar, you won’t have fun shopping. Absolute chaos!!!More
