Port St Johns is a small town on the Wild Coast known for its untamed waters and exquisite weather. Visitors from around the world come to experience a completely unspoiled section of Africa. The 60 kilometre drive from Umtata to Port St Johns is known to be one of the most beautiful journeys in the Wild Coast filled with images of undulating coast and never ending grassland.
The entrance of Port St Johns is marked by the 'Gates of St. John'; twin mountains that stand guard on either side of the Umzimvubu river mouth. Port St Johns is a small and rustic town known and loved for being unpretentious and unchanged by civilization.
The town offers plenty of accommodation, restaurants filled with delicious seafood and spectacular hiking, canoeing and horse riding trails. Visitors can also go on guided tours to nearby Pondo Villages to learn more about the locals and how they live. For those who like adventure, there are the 5 and 7 metre cliff jumps from the Bulolo Waterfall or an adrenalin filled jungle swing through the bush.
