Coffee Bay is a small village community along the Wild Coast of the Eastern Cape of South Africa, noted for the area's magnificent natural beauty. The town consists of traditional African huts, a trading post, a camping site, and two resort hotels. The community is located 200 km North of East London, along N2. Coffee Bay's government is based on the traditional tribal system. The community is governed by Tribal Law in which local Headmen and Chiefs run tribal courts. Coffee Bay is a Xhosa community. The people live in rondavels that are thatched mud-brick huts with no running water or electricity.

There is no trace of the wrecked ship with its cargo of coffee beans that gave Coffee Bay its name, but there are plenty of other attractions for visitors. Coffee Bay has the delightful ambience of a tropical ski village, with rustic hotels, lodges, bars and open-air lounges all within walking distance of each other, and each trying to out-picturesque its neighbour. Dress code is strictly beachcomber-style, and most meals are eaten outdoors. This is one of the most popular holiday resorts on the Wild Coast, with safe and beautiful swimming beaches, spectacular hikes, excellent fishing and a transient population of families on holiday, backpackers, campers, tourists and students.
