This charming seaside village lies 75 km north-east of East London. The warm summers and sunny winters offer ideal conditions for outdoor enthusiasts. The town and its surrounding area have been declared a conservancy to protect rare indigenous species of animals, such as the Cape clawless otter and the blue duiker (a small antelope).

Adventure And Sport

Angling: Haga-Haga’s rocky coast has several spots where anglers can try their luck from the coast.

Deep-sea fishing: Various operators in the area offer deep-sea fishing charters.

Hiking and beach-combing: Try the rocky 8-km walk past Rooiwal to Cape Henderson for a start and enquire at Hibiscus Farm about other hiking trails in the vicinity.

Power-boating: There are two access points from which to launch powerboats from the beach. Please remember that no vehicles other than those used to launch boats, are allowed on the beach.

Water-sport: Because the Haga-Haga River is quite shallow, local water enthusiasts board-sail and paddle-ski in the surf. Canoeing is another popular activity.

Art And Crafts

Mtwentwe Beads: Beautiful traditional Xhosa beadwork is sold here as part of a proactive community initiative to generate an income for local inhabitants.
