You can also find different accommodation types including rustic cabins, backpacker offerings, and an ocean view hotel.

It is alleged that the town got its name "Coffee Bay" from the hundreds of coffee trees which grew from beans either scattered by shipwrecks. Although, there are no longer any more coffee trees in the area due to its salty soil. Most of the native population speak Xhosa, Xhosa is a Bantu language which is spoken by seven million people in South Africa, it is rather hard to get right. The place is a very casual mix of international backpackers, and tourists looking for a relaxing ambiance.
