Mdumbi Ocean View

Wake up to the sounds of roaring breakers pounding in the distance, the smell of the ocean wafting through your room. This is paradise and it’s waiting for you. Mdumbi Ocean View is set in a remote region of the former Transkei Coast, elevated approximately 50 meters above sea level. This is genuinely a fisherman’s paradise with untouched reserves of fish and pristine coastline. We invite you to an experience of a lifetime.

Please note, this is not a commercialized part of the coast. There are no highways, shopping centres or rush hour traffic. When you visit our cottages or camp sites, be prepared to find peace and tranquility, far from the beaten track.
