A BRIEF INTRODUCTION
Outspan Inn is situated in Port St Johns, on the beautiful Wild Coast at the mouth of the Umzimvubu River. A short walk across the lawns takes you straight down to First (our!) Beach. It’s not a swimming beach, but is great for sundowners, walks, and building sand castles.
We have ten well appointed en-suite Bed and Breakfast rooms and four self catering units. All rooms and units are fully equipped and serviced by our cleaning staff. All our rooms are sea facing, but because we are environmentally aware & bird friendly, the swathe of coastal bush between the lawns and the beach is left intact for the birds (120 species recorded at Outspan Inn).
We have conference facilities. It is air conditioned and can seat up to 40 persons. The venue can be hired with options of including meals and accommodation.
Outspan Inn has large gardens which lead down to ‘our’ beach, the Umzimvubu River mouth. There is enough space to erect a large tent, and we also have public lounge, and a conference room that can all be used in conjunction, to make your wedding day a dream come true. In house decorators and caterers are available.
THINGS TO DO & SEE
The Port St Johns area is an ideal venue for experiencing the Sardine Run, bird watching, fishing, and any outdoor lovers will have more than enough activities to keep them occupied, including guided tours to the nearby cultural Pondo villages, whale and dolphin watching, off-shore boating and fishing trips, kayaking and hiking trails. Port St Johns also has a well maintained 9 hole Golf Course, which welcomes non members.
THE WILD COAST
The Wild Coast, with its unspoiled beaches, awesome waterfalls, lushly forested landscapes and cultural diversity is one of the world's most spectacular tourist destinations. Protected by its remoteness and previous inaccessibility, this area has long remained undiscovered by the outside world.
