TravelPod Member ReviewsBomvu Backpackers Coffee Bay
the place looks tired it needs a face lift. The owner and workers are lovely but not satisfied with a few things. Our food was eaten out of the fridge and they didnt do anything about it, we booked tours the night before but when we went at the time requested they still hadnt booked anything and had to ring around (occured more than once). Room was nice.

I definitely found that Coffee Bay is a place to be enjoyed in the sunshine as everything you do is outdoors and looks far more beautiful without rain to spoil it!

I also made a couple trips up to the local "shebeen" which is a bar/store. It was a two room structure, one which was a room and the other which was the bar that had about 20 people sitting on beer ...
... and visiting the Bulungula Incubation Centre grounded us in the way of life of the Xhosa people. We went out in the car one late afternoon to take photographs and a couple of teenaged young women in grades 8 and 9 asked for a ride to their homes. They walk a long and very hilly road to and from school every day. When we arrived at their destination, they didn’t know how to get out of the car likely because they probably are rarely in a car.
... leg the next morning.
Plet's offerings include canoeing, kloofing, abseiling, river ferries and ocean safaris. We passed on this and headed further east. Our intention was to get to the Transkei Wild Coast as our next stop. This required an overnight stay in Port Elizabeth and an early morning departure on the Baz Bus bound for Durban. While still on the bus we got a glimpse of the World's Highest Bungy Jump enroute. The driver slowed down as we crossed ...
