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.
