Our New Backpackers Beach Hostel in Vic Bay

Written by AmakayaBP

Just a short drive down the coast from Plettenberg Bay and Amakaya Backpackers, lies a little gem of a bay – Vic Bay (or Victoria Bay). Largely unknown to tourists, Vic Bay is most popular for it’s excellent waves for surfing and views of the dramatic Southern Cape coastline and ocean. Amakaya Backpackers is proud to introduce our new sister backpackers, Backpackers Beach Hostel in Vic Bay!


Vic Bay is between the beautiful city of George and the Wilderness coastline – ideally located for exploring this leg of the Garden Route and our new backpackers is right on the beach of Vic Bay – you couldn’t ask for a better location and view. Vic Bay is surrounded by cliffs creating a natural and safe swimming cove, whilst the open ocean pushes in great swell for a long surf. The beautiful tidal pool and jetty date back to the early twentieth century and add immense charm to this little coastal village. There are a number of nature walks to enjoy around Vic Bay and a particularly great walk along the railway around Kaaimans Pass.


The backpackers is cosy and comfortable, a mere 100m from the beach, has a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, a communal lounge with Satellite TV, free Wi-Fi and Satellite TV in all the rooms. It’s the perfect place for a quiet breakaway, an adventurous surf holiday or an essential stop along the Garden Route.
