I Love Cintsa Because …

I ♥ Cintsa

I ♥ Cintsa

Hi, I’m Charlene Brown from Crawford’s Beach Lodge and Cabins in Cintsa on the Wild Coast.

Cintsa IS BEST KNOWN FOR its lovely clean beaches and untouched nature.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT any one of the many small and sometimes big tide pools along the long beach.

THE BEST relaxation PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN ON our lawn in front of the deluxe suites hanging around in a hammock.

OTHER HAPPY SNAPS can be taken at Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserve not even 10 minutes away with hand raised cheetahs, and well behaved elephants.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO go for long walks along the white beaches or horseback riding in the Sea water along the beach, just taking in all the natural elements around me.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO visit the old East London museum, or for the more modern people, to go shopping at Hemmingway’s Mall.

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS all year round, BECAUSE although sometimes the weather is not great, but then you can still relax and enjoy a lovely book or board game with some friend or family.

MY FAVOURITE BREAKFAST SPOT IS as for all or most meals I will have to recommend Crawford’s, with the wide range of foods on display and so much to choose from. As all the meals or most are buffet style you have the option of eating what you like and as much as you like.

FOR LUNCH, I SUGGEST the Country Bumpkin Restaurant on Heron Loop Drive.

FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN TRY a cocktail or two at Michaela’s some of which have delightful names for example the “Chintsa-natti Lady”.

Cintsa’s BEST KEPT SECRET IS the culture and hidden path ways though the sand dunes on the beaches. Or for the brave bun do bashing though the bush either on foot or bike.

MY FAVOURITE THING TO DO WITH FRIENDS IS to pack a little back pack and show them to Dune forest near Cintsa West.

TO RELAX AND RESTORE MY SOUL, I LIKE TO go to Prana Lodge situated right next to Crawford’s Beach Lodge, where you can enjoy being pampered the whole day.

IF YOU’RE FEELING ADVENTUROUS, TRY taking a mountain bike along the beach for a few hours.

MY FAVOURITE WALK IS at Inkwenkwezi Game reserve with the elephant right next to you, while you learn more about them, by feeding and playing with them.

MY FAVOURITE place to SHOP IS the main beach entrance with lovely culture gifts and little things made locally.

MY FAVOURITE bird WATCHING SPOT IS by walking though the bushy parts of Cintsa and just keeping an eye out.

IF YOU’RE HERE IN July, JOIN IN THE FUN AT the Wild Coast Wet ‘n Wild Festival.

TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN? A FUN OUTING IS to take the children to Yukelela Play farm, with a list of activities on offer to choose from. Crawford’s Beach Lodge also offers a very playful play room. And as for baby we offer babysitting service as well.

BEST CHEAP AND CHEERFUL OUTING IS the Lion park on the Stutterheim Road close to Beacon Bay offers a wonderful selection of game and a small restaurant.

WHEN MONEY’S NO OBJECT, I LIKE TO do a day trip though Inkwenkwezi Game Reserve or Areena resort with their different activities on offer. Maybe try and fit them all in at on one day!

THE MOST UNUSUAL THING I SEE HERE IS the bird life that seems to expand day after day, so if you see a new bird best is to add it to our very long bird list.

MY FAVOURITE WEEKEND GETAWAY IS to Haga-Haga that offers different types of accommodation.

WHEN I WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, I offer time to assist the young children in the village.

Cintsa just offers the most out of a trip, if you are looking to get some real rest and relaxation. It offers the untouched nature all around and although it’s not a big city you still have fun in the sun!

I Love Cintsa BECAUSE it’s untouched, mystical and offers a lot of relaxation.
