Haga Haga is a quiet seaside village facing the Indian Ocean only 45 minutes drive from East London on the beautiful and unspoilt Wild Coast of South Africa.

The sea temperature is ideal for swimming surfing and snorkelling. The beaches, which are never crowded, and a short walk from our Haga Haga house, are safe for careful swimmers and there is a selection of safe rock pools and a lagoon for small children. The main beach at Haga Haga is of soft creamy white sand, perfect for sunbathing and beach games.

There are shelly beaches for collectors nearby, walking trails, the Haga Haga tennis club, golf and horse riding nearby. Haga Haga has an active conservancy which takes care of the local flora and fauna. There is a well stocked library with up to date titles.

Whales and dolphins are frequently seen between July and early December, passing slowly by, sometimes quite close in to the shore. The coastal (and inland) walks offer a range of  great views and exercise for all degrees of fitness.

How did Haga Haga get its curious name? The Xhosa word for hook up is ‘haka’. Eastern Cape farmers from the colder areas inland used the wild coast for 3 to 4 months of winter grazing each year. When teams of oxen were being hooked together cries of ‘haka!, haka!’ could be heard along the beach.
