Wild Coast

The appropriately named Wild Coast is an outdoor paradise with rugged cliffs, sheltered bays and dense coastal forests. The region stretches around 280 km (175 miles) from East London to the Umtamvuna Nature Reserve next to Port Edward in KwaZulu-Natal. Much of the area is communally owned by the Xhosa, whose rural communities live off the land and adhere to age-old traditions. Spectacular beaches front a section of the Indian Ocean that is notorious for its shipwrecks.
