  • Coffee Bay is one of South Africa’s most popular getaways. A small town consisting of about 600 people, was named after a ship wreck that lost its cargo of coffee beans off the coast. The beans were washed up onto the beaches to germinate. Although there are none of these trees left, the name has since stuck.

    Coffee Bay is part of the O.R. Tambo District Municipality in the Eastern Cape, one of the poorest provinces in South Africa. It stretches for 160kms from the Kei Mouth in the south to Port Edward in the north and about 100kms inland. The municipality is also made up mostly of the former “Republic of Transkei, an ‘independent’ homeland during apartheid. The land was set aside for the Xhosa people, but was no more than a puppet state controlled by the apartheid government. The area suffered from no economic or social investment leading to a lack of opportunities, poor infrastructure and many environmental problems associated with this level of poverty.
