Firstly, Port St. Johns. If you're looking for the most beautiful landscape in South Africa then look no further. Port St. Johns is picturesque with its rolling hills, thick vegetation and spectacular views of the Mzimvubu river winding itself into the Indian Ocean. Not to mention the hustling town, ever present wildlife and genuinely friendly locals.
Amapondo. Nestled afoot the hills with nothing but beauty surrounding it, makes for a perfect setting - a stones throw from the beach. Amapondo is a place of tranquility with regular activities provided such as hikes, meditation sessions, sundowners, et cetera. Let the sun set and tranquility may just turn into debauchery with a DJ here and vodka shot there. They have it all.
A backpackers can only be as good as the staff running it and herein lies the secret. The ever helpful staff create the atmosphere that will leave you with Pondo fever and the desire to return.
Great filter coffee, fresh fruit smoothies and an inspired kitchen put the cherry on top.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Amapondo is Ama-azing. Amapondo is nestled on a hill on the verge of a tropical rain forest and only 2 minutes walk from a beautiful beach. Head down to sunbathe or plunge in the clear warm waters of the deep rock pools nearby. The African-themed rooms and deluxe private self-catering cottages all have their own unique design and style. The quirkily designed cottages have incredible views, are really comfortable and come at a price that you'll find hard to match. Turtle Cove has one of the best views on the Wild Coast from its upstairs bubble bath, whilst Crystal House, with its glass frontage, offers classic panoramic ocean views. Whether you want a quiet, relaxing break in your own piece of paradise, a base from which you can explore the natural beauty of the area, an adventure on one of their many tours, close interactions with locals, genuine cultural experiences, yoga lessons, a deep tissue massage, or a thumping all-out party at their buzzy bar, you'll find it at Amapondo. ... more less
