Chintsa is supposedly named after the "crumbling" banks of its river during floods, the small town of Cintsa is split into two by the river and as it's one of the last towns before the Wild Coast starts, it already has some of the Wild Coast feel and beaches that run for miles and miles. We think that it's a lovely stop.
An Earthly paradise
This small piece of paradise lies on a hill overlooking a stunning lagoon that meanders into the sea. Sand dunes soar skywards and the wild beach will tantalise you along its entire length. Forget about your hairdo and go exploring.
Moving with the times
There is now an ATM in Chintsa!
