Property Description

Buccaneers is definitely one of the best backpackers in South Africa thanks to the hard work and incredible generosity and spirit of the Price family.

Set on a hillside in the wild coastal forest, Buccaneers has exceptional sea and lagoon views and a stunning unspoilt beach right on its doorstep.

An inspiring creative energy flows through the place with brave strokes of creative genius apparent everywhere. Their secluded, rustic beach cottages, each housing 2-3 doubles, offer excellent value for money.

Trail through coastal forests to a wonderful shell beach or take a 15km stroll along unspoilt coastline. Get into a game of volleyball, try the climbing wall and swimming pool or the Longtable pub that provides the perfect setting for legendary revelries and gob-smacking nosh.

Sound too good to be true? It almost is. So don't miss it. View House Rules

    This place is one of a kind. It’s like staying in a 5* resort and the vibe is super relaxing. The natural setting is incredible and the people are amazing. Can’t wait to go back!

    The newer hotel like rooms that we stayed in were awesome. We had our own private balcony with ocean views. A huge modern kitchen was shared by all six rooms in the building block.

    Fantastic unique family driven place, with all the amenities you would require for a stay. Beds and linen are well prepared, the location is a stone throw away from the beach. If you’re a dog lover or even monkey lover, they are also on the premises roaming around, the staff are welcoming and accommodating plus there is an awesome bar with music, live football and great bartenders to keep the good vibe rolling! And the food is amazing! I am definitely coming back to the lodge !!!

    Extraordinary hostel, actually more a resort with a gorgeous forest setting. The dorm has spectacular views of the beach. In the early morning there are monkeys, so make sure to keep the doors shut, or they'll come inside and steal any food they can find. The communal dinner is a great way to meet other guests. Food, in general, was excellent. It's a 15-minute walk down to the pristine beach. Only 200mb of wifi is free, so prepare to pay for more or rather go offline while you're there.

    brilliant hostel - great staff (especially Sal) and felt very homely! Great food selection and the private room had a nice view. The local shop is small and quite far/out of the way if you have no car so if you plan on cooking buy food before you visit (only a hob available) but overall great hostel with a good range of activites (incl. free volleyball with free wine everyday we were there). Would definitely return

    Nice hostel but not much to do around there if you don't surf. They advertise a lot of cultural activities in surrounding villages, most of them didn't take place while we were there.
