About 9 km south of Coffee Bay is the stunning geographical feature known as Hole in the Wall.

Over the millenia the waves from the Indian Ocean have worn a tunnel through the cliffs that form an 'island' just off the beach.

The local name for Hole in the Wall is eiKhaleni which means 'the place of the sound' as, at times, the waves make a rumbling sound as they pass through the large hole.

The area around Hole in the Wall is known for its beautiful unspoilt beaches.
