More info about Chintsa Bay

The picturesque village of Chintsa is located just 40km north of East London. Whether you are a keen golfer, special interest tourist or just looking for a bit of time off to kick back and relax the Wild Coast has all you want and more. The rugged terrain of the Eastern Cape stretches for infinite miles to the foot of the Drakensberg Mountains, the coastline jagged with little coves and inlets and beautiful hidden beaches. Fishing is both a commercial and recreational activity, thanks to the abundance of marine life along the shores. The village is the area’s hub of activity, offering sweeping views of the rural greenery and surrounds, as well as magnificent Indian Ocean views as the Chintsa river mouth meets the open sea. The town is named after this river and marks the centre of division between Chintsa East and Chintsa West.

The eastern side is subject to much development and has become a prime holiday destination for both budget and high end travellers. For a taste of the area’s culture and history one can visit the Atalaia shipwreck which sunk in 1647. Over 197 species of birdlife have been recorded in the area. Eco-tourists will especially appreciate the rolling white sand dunes, indigenous forests and coastal grasslands which trademark the region’s ecosystem. The Inkwenkwezi Game Reserve is just nearby, for those wanting to view Africa’s bigger game.

The Chintsa area experiences high average rainfall with mild, pleasant temperatures year round, never exceeding 28 degrees Celsius in summer. Take a ride along the river for a stunning sunset cruise; walk through one of the nearby villages for an unforgettable taste of the local culture or abseil hundreds of feet down a rocky outcrop – there is something for everyone! There is even the Chintsa River Golfing Estate to challenge your putting skills. The Strandloper Hiking Trail makes for a challenging and scenic hike through Chintsa, meandering for 17km along the coast.

The lounge will have a full entertainment system, including Dstv, and wifi can be expected. Due to the general size of the Villas, they are best suited to families, with older children, or small to medium groups of friends.
