Haga Haga village offers so many things to keep visitors occupied  with a wide range of outdoor activities. Some of these include fishing, surfing, snorkelling, shell collecting, tennis, golf and horse riding, not forgetting the excellent walking trails available, which include the Krantz Flower Walk to Pullens Bay (3km), another trail to Whale Point, as well as Lagoon Lookout and Otter Creek Walk. There is a longer (10km) hike to Main Beach and Double Mouth which is also popular.

There is a museum to visit as well which includes a number of displays and photographs along with information on the fauna, flora, shells and beadwork common to the area.

If you want to escape then Haga Haga Beach Hotel is just the place for you and your family offering personalised service, unsurpassed views, great food and 40 years of excellent service.

The hotel is a stone’s throw from unspoilt endless beaches set to the backdrop of rolling hills and magnificent ocean views. It is the perfect place to celebrate your wedding, office function, birthday party or a weekend break.

The hotel offers both hotel and serviced self-catering accommodation with every room sea-facing. Their tented venue offers both indoors and outdoor function facilities. The rocks, beach and rolling hills provide the perfect place to explore where kids can play safely.

Haga Haga has a rich selection of marine and land flora and fauna and the whole region between the Nyara and Quko Rivers has become a conservancy due to the number of rare indigenous species such as the Cape Clawless Otter and the Blue Duiker.

Haga Haga started in the hinterland in the 1920’s when farmers acquired land for winter grazing. To cross the beach they had to unspan one team of oxen and hook them to another team or in isiXhosa “Haka Haka”, which is where the name originates.
