A Day At Thonga

The days follow the pleasing rhythms of the ocean, and are planned according to the tides.




An alternative to "resorts" giving one the chance to experience a really beautiful beach, peace and quiet, but all with exceptional thatched rondavels, boardwalks, good food and great management.

The trip up the road from Coastal Cashews is worth it!

There are plenty of options if you are into Scuba, snorkelling etc. and we used the fantastic Spa area, which boasted an outstanding young lady who really knew how to unkink the muscles and stimulate a feeling of wellbeing!! We both went twice and have never had such a good experience with a masseuse.

We slept like Lords and felt very privileged to have shared such a magical place.

“Top notch beach holiday in secluded dream location”

We had an absolutely fantastic time at Thonga Beach Lodge and can highly recommend it if you are looking for quiet and relaxing get-away. Bungalows are spacious and stylish and you fall asleep to the sound of the waves hitting the beach. The staff could not have been more friendly and service-minded, they tended to our every need and made their very best to make our stay memorable. Food is simply excellent, healthy and great variety of dishes. Our teenagers loved to alternate between the pools by the lodge and the beach just a few metres away. Beautiful pristine beach with great snorkelling possibilities. Highlight of our stay was swimming with dolphins during the ocean experience boat-trip. Loved every part of this holiday!

“An Exceptional Lodge In A Breathtaking Location”

We stayed five nights at Thonga Beach Lodge and enjoyed the experience immensely. The location on a 'wilderness' beach is quite simply stunning, with the lodge built into the dunes behind so that it is virtually invisible. Our cottage (number 4) was beautifully appointed and provided an excluded and very restful experience - the huge and very comfortable bed, large shower room and vanity area were all thoughtfully designed for maximum comfort.

The standard of food was exceptional (all meals plus afternoon tea are included), with a very wide choice of dishes. Table service is highly efficient and friendly. Staff at the lodge, many of whom come from the local community were, without exception, extremely friendly and very efficient - some of the best staff we have ever encountered and comparable with the best luxury hotels we have stayed in in the far east.

There is a wide range of activities to do, most of which are included. Scuba diving and the Ocean Experience are charged extra - these two activities involve a beach launch of the boat into the surf and a return beach landing that are both exciting and hair raising if one hasn't done it before.

All in all Thonga Beach Lodge exceeded our expectations in every respect. If you're looking for a unique place to spend a few days in stunning surroundings then we highly recommend it.

“Holiday in Paradise”

There is no other place in the world like Thonga Beach. Best place to see dolphins and whales. Best accommodation in South Africa, with delightful meals. A remote beach with outstanding ocean experiences.

Thank you Thonga, for a truly memorable stay. And a special shout-out to Siphiwe, the resort's wonderful evening barman. We'll be back!
