About Crawfords Beach Lodge

High dunes, unspoiled beaches, all the advantages of the Wild Coast in an exclusive setting, only 40 kilometers from East London. Crawford’s Beach Lodge is set in the lush dune forests, on the beautiful Chintsa Bay Beach, Wild Coast.

We offer elegant guest house accommodation and a well equipped conference centre. Our trade mark is personal service and fine country fare, in an atmosphere of intimate peace and tranquility. Each cottage has an individual balcony from which to greet the day, and is surrounded by an abundance of wild life and nature.

Breakfast is served overlooking the shimmering Indian Ocean, and where evening barbecues are the norm for those wanting to take in the evening hue. Sun-drenched days are spent swimming in a turquoise sea, or strolling the golden beaches. The conference package includes all meals, accommodation and morning and afternoon teas. The Sea at your door, the Beach at your feet.

Beach: Spend your days walking on our endless golden beaches or enjoying the unique sea cruises and be absorbed by the untouched natural splendor the landscape has to offer, while discovering new exotic bird and fish life indigenous to the area.

Spa: Senses Spa is open to the general public too. You do not have to be a guest at Crawford's; day visitors are welcome! Bookings are required.

Wedding Venues: We can host your special day, and you can stay over with us in one of our wonderfully romantic Honeymoon rooms.

Conference Venues: We have a conference center, one which can take up to 80 people and a smaller room which can accommodate approximately 30 people. We hold conferences throughout the year and cater for all three meals, plus tea and coffee breaks

Family friendly: We have a wonderful kiddies club over December holidays that cater from treasure hunts to sand boarding and much, much more.

Romantic: We have had numerous breathtaking proposals on our stunning beach and a private picnic set-up for just two.

Covid Safety Approved: We pledge to implement a high standard of hygiene and cleaning protocols to ensure the safest environment possible for our guests. We adhere to the industry safety protocols set out by the Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA).

                                      Great spot, however accommodation is in a gated complex where no-one is available to answer the phone or respond to the 'buzzer' to open the gate after hours, hence getting into to your unit after dark is not possible.

                                      The management and staff of Crawfords Beach Lodge went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible.  From the reception desk to the waiters in the dining hall, all were extremely professional.  This attests to thorough training and maintenance of standards.  Our room had a beautiful view of the beach, was within easy walking distance from the dining facilities and it was spotlessly clean.  When we returned from dinner that evening,  a welcoming chocolate had been placed on our turned-back covers.  This attention to detail did not go unnoticed either. :)The chef and kitchen team...
