Port St Johns

Jewel of the Wild Coast


With singular lack of imagination the beaches at Port St Johns were named First Beach, Second Beach and Third Beach!

First Beach is at the mouth of the mighty Umzimvubu River and you are advised not to swim there unless you want to rub fins with the numerous sharks seen there.

Second Beach is about 12 kilometers south of the town along a tar road. It is an idyllic bathing beach – very safe for swimming as it has a very gentle slope. There is a full life-guard contingent as well. The pictures below speak for themselves.

Third Beach is only accessible with a permit and is composed mainly of rocks and rock pools.
