The Thatch Guest House offers accommodation with the accent on comfort. Bordering an acclaimed bird sanctuary and overlooking the Indian Ocean, this establishment provides luxury and tranquillity to the discerning traveller.
Situated close to local amenities and an easy 10 minutes from the East London city centre and 20 minutes from the airport, The Thatch is well placed to provide for all needs.
The Indian Ocean coastline is the main feature – and attraction – of the Eastern area. The warm sea is good for swimming and fishing. There are small resort developments at virtually all river mouths in the eastern part of the region.
East London, South Africa’s only river port, is set on both the broad Buffalo River and Nahoon River and has the Gonubie River flowing around it. It is known as the gateway to the region’s tourist corridors: the Sunshine Coast and the Wild Coast.
The Sunshine Coast is to the south and runs for more than 200 km to Port Elizabeth. The Wild Coast is to the north. Rugged and unspoilt, the coastline is indigenous coastal forest.
