Haga Haga Accommodation and Information
Situated at the southern limit of the Wild Coast, Haga Haga offers holiday accommodation that ranges from bed & breakfast and self-catering apartments to hotel luxury.
The pristine seaside village of Haga Haga is situated 60km from East London on the Eastern Cape Wild Coast. Haga Haga is small and unspoilt by major developments, consisting of only about 70 houses, which makes it an ideal location for a quiet, peaceful holiday, in comfortable accommodation. It's the perfect place for you to build some special memories for yourself and your family.
Farmers from the hinterland started the village in the early 1920s, when they acquired farms here for winter grazing. They would move their livestock and possessions by ox wagon down to the coast for 3 to 4 months each year. Haga Haga got its name from the Xhosa "Haka Haka", which means to "hook on", because to cross the beach they would have to hook one team of oxen to another.
During the winter months, migrating shoals of sardines attract a frenzy of activity from gannets, seals, dolphins and predatory fish as they migrate up the Wild Coast. Haga Haga's "Whale Point" lookout point is great place to do some dolphin and whale watching. Humpback and Southern Right Whales migrate from the Antarctic to the shores of South Africa to calve and are often seen from the shore.
Accommodation in Haga Haga consists of a Hotel as well as Bed & Breakfast and Self Catering apartments and houses. Services are limited, but there is a small shop, which stocks most of the essentials. Access is via a 13km gravel road, which can be pot-holed and corrugated at times, but is never impassable.
