About Amapondo Backpackers

We’re situated in Port St Johns in the former Transkei. Known for its vibrant fusion of both breathtaking scenery and vibey African atmosphere, it’s easy to see why people call it the Jewel of the Wild Coast and keep returning.

Amapondo Backpackers is nestled in a tropical rainforest on a hill and all our rooms, campsite and en suite accommodation overlook stunning 2nd beach, which is only one of many reasons why your stay here will be a memorable one.

After you’ve woken up to the soothing sounds of the sea, go join our guides for one of our daily hikes. Or if you simply can’t get over how beautiful it is, take in the view a little more from one of our hammocks, or sit back and spoil yourself with our healthy smoothies, homemade burgers, delicious cafe lattes, and other delicious meals in our restaurant. Vegetarian options are available for all meals. We also offer free WIFI!

Accommodation Information

With hand painted walls and a lot of attention to detail, our rooms, ranging from spacious dorms, doubles, for sleeper rooms, the beautiful en suite cottages at the top of our hill, are quite unique. They all face the ocean and our staff will do the rest and go out of their way to make you feel at home in an instant.
