Coffee Bay Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 47 photos

Coffee Bay is probably one of the best stops I had in South Africa. I spent 2 nights there with Baz, and on the second day, Baz, Belinda, and I did the 6 hour hike there and back to the Hole in the Wall. It wasn't a killer hike, but challenging, and there were very many stunning scenaries en route. Check out my travelogue below for pix of the hike.

What I liked most about Coffee Bay was the night life in Coffee Shack, the hostel where we stayed. There we met Jon and Yildez, and few others. It was probably the first place where I met other solo travellers. The nights were spent playing Jenga or pool or just chatting. Each night, there is a killer pool competition. I didn't win at all, but Baz did the second night. I also got caught breaking one of the Buffalo Rules and had to down my nearly full drink.

Pros and Cons
