Port St Johns Holidays - Eastern Cape, Wild Coast & Berg

Click here for Port St Johns Accommodation

Port St Johns on the Wild Coast & Berg in the Eastern Cape, presents its signature mangrove swamps, impenetrable forests and dramatic lashing waves. Port St Johns is known as the "Jewel of the Wild Coast & Berg", offering true Eastern Cape hospitality.

The Eastern Cape Umzimvubu River (Xhosa for "hippo") cuts a huge gorge right to the sea between the Thesiger and Sullivan twin mountains, which stand on either side of the river mouth like strongholds, and are regarded as the gates of Port St Johns. Another Port St Johns sentinel is the Cape Hermes Lighthouse, which has since 1903 been warning passing ships of the jagged rocks that line this dangerous Port St Johns Eastern Cape coastline.
Port St Johns beaches (three) are great for dolphin watching, whale watching and excellent fishing. The Umzimvubu River mouth and the rocky Poenskop fishing beach are exceptionally popular Eastern Cape fishing spots for year round fishing.

Port St Johns Third Beach is well known for its "laid-back atmosphere", and is a favourite retreat for backpackers and free spirited bohemians.

For the more energetic, numerous Eastern Cape hiking trails saunter through the nearby Port St Johns Silaka Nature Reserve, which is nestled in a forested valley between Port St Johns Second Beach and Sugarloaf Rock. Similarly located in a densely forested region a few kilometres from Port St Johns, the Isinuka Springs are visited by thousand of people each year who seek relief in the sulphur water for various ailments.

The decaying colonial grandeur of Port St Johns offers some wonderfully unique restaurants - a "must visit" is the Delicious Monster Restaurant in Port St Johns, famous for its awesome views and fresh seafood.
You'll be spoiled for choice when it comes to Port St Johns Bed & Breakfast accommodation, as "there are still a few places on earth where, if you listen carefully, you can hear your heartbeat echo across the water" ... and in the very heart of the Eastern Cape's hidden natural wonderland, Port St Johns Bed & Breakfast accommodation Cremorne Seaside River Resort treats their guests as close friends, and will welcome you with good old fashioned hospitality.
You'll find comfortable Port St Johns Self Catering accommodation nestled in lush gardens situated just a few meters from Port St Johns Long Beach, with easy access to good fishing, a 9 hole golf course, and numerous excellent restaurants where you can enjoy a hearty meal. The Umzimvubu River front offers excellent Port St Johns accommodation options.
Town central is pretty run down and Port St Johns accommodation should perhaps be sought on the fringes of town
