Among many delightful spots along the Wild and East Coast of the Eastern Cape Province, where you will find white, pristine beaches, along the refreshing Indian Ocean, surfing havens and a fisherman’s paradise is CRAWFORDS BEACH LODGE at Chintsa.  This conference venue in the Eastern Cape, is a mere 20 minute drive from Gonubie, which is on the outskirts of East London, on the Buffalo River.

Crawford’s Beach Lodge, set along the magical Wild Coast, offers rustic luxury accommodation for the most discerning of travelers and conference organisers, who are looking for privacy, peace, and tranquility.

Crawford’s is nestled in the middle of the beautiful Chintsa Bay on the Wild Coast, surrounded by rolling hills, lush tropical beach forests and overlooks the warm Indian Ocean. A romantic getaway to explore the many beautiful treasures the wild coast has to offer.

Spend your days walking on our endless golden beaches and be absorbed by the untouched natural beauty of the landscape while discovering new exotic bird and fish life indigenous to the area.

Our location is malaria free. We are approximately 42km from East London, far enough from the madding crowd, but close enough for emergencies.
