Hole In The Wall
Port Alfred, Eastern Cape, South Africa
Surrounded by miles of unspoiled coastline Hole in the Wall Hotel and Holiday Village offers some of the most beautiful scenery in South Africa. It is set in a secluded, tropical bay in the heart of the Wild Coast - the perfect setting for those wanting to 'get away from it all'.

For backpackers there is a dorm that sleeps 24 plus 9 double rooms with en suite. The grounds are fenced and secure with 24 hour security.
The Hotel offers sea-fishing and boating charters. The large unspoiled beach provides a venue for swimming, sunbathing and all related water sports including surfing and fishing. Great 4 x 4 adventure trips, horse riding and cultural tours are on offer. One can also explore the area on foot. The scenery is spectacular and the large variety of attractions include the famous geographical feature of Hole in the Wall, rivers, lagoons, rock pools and a chance to explore the rural African landscape.
The essence of the Wild Coast is that nothing happens in a hurry, which is definitely the case in the small coastal towns of Port St Johns and Coffee Bay.
The remoteness of Hole in the Wall lends itself to excellent bird watching, nature walks, hiking trails as well as being an ideal spot for fishing. The beach is directly in front of the resort and has a lovely natural bay. This quaint hotel offers restaurant and bar facilities, and a satellite TV in the lounge and bar.
Although the setting is serene there is plenty to keep the visitor entertained.
On the grounds of the Entertainment Village there is a swimming pool with side bar and fantastic view of the beach. A play area complete with trampoline, swings and a model boat can keep the children entertained for hours. For adults there is a ladies bar which is open till late. Play for free on one of the two pool tables or relax and watch the sunset over the sea from the outside deck. A volley ball court is available for those who enjoy a little action!
The Wild Coast, as its name suggests is rugged and unspoiled, with numerous shipwrecks along its deserted beaches. It is the heart of unspoiled rural South Africa, almost untouched by time and particularly untouched by the infrastructure that the rest of South Africa is accustomed to.
