Port St Johns – Umngazi Beach hike

This is a 12km full-day hike, starting at Second Beach in Port St Johns and finishing at Umngazi beach. It is the same hiking trail that leads to Coffee Bay, but ending at Umngazi beach & River, instead of the full 5 days.

This day-hike takes you through Silaka Nature reserve and to Sugar Loaf hill. It runs parallel to the Indian Ocean and has stunning sea views, rolling & green hills dotted with the colourful round houses/huts of Sicambeni and Vukandlule villages, and panoramic views of the beautiful Wild coast from the hilltops. 


End the hike at Umngazi beach, where our shuttle driver awaits your arrival and treats you to refreshments (cool drinks, bottled water and locally made fruit juices, wood-fired Xhosa bread toasted sandwiches). Enjoy a refreshing swim at Umngazi beach before our comfortable shuttle brings you back to your place of residence, in Port St Johns, driving through some of the most beautiful rural villages of the Eastern cape province along the way!


Our hiking tours are all led by local guides, also working closely with a few local businessmen and women who offer services such as catering, as well as vegetable & fruit farmers, local fishermen, etc.
