    I stayed at Buccaneers for 1 night, big rooms with a clean bathroom as well. Our room had an amazing view at the lagoon where we sat in the evening. Played some volleyball and afterwords had dinner, which was delicious!

    Stayed over in Chintsa during a road trip to the Garden Route. Convenient place as they can offer supper and there is a bar. Food was very traditional and was okay. There are great views at the beach. Camping site was clean and tidy.
