Located less than an hour from East London on South Africa's breath-taking Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape’s Amatole District Municipality, Morgan Bay is an idyllic seaside town offering beautiful wildlife, stunning beaches, and a wide variety of outdoor sports. Two safe and idyllic swimming spots are on offer: a mile-long beach of soft white sands patrolled by lifeguards over the summertime and the lovely lagoon where visitors may even spot fish eagles and crowned cranes. These birds are only two of 270 species in the area, making the town an excellent bird-watching destination, and an array of other animals can be spotted at the Endalweni Private Game Reserve.
Thrill seekers can indulge in hiking, mountain biking, fishing, surfing, canoeing, horse riding, rock climbing and abseiling. Make sure to visit the nearby Bead Beach to see a 16th-century Portuguese shipwreck.
