Hamburg offers miles of wild beach and a dam which can keep one entertained for a whole day but is best known for it's wonderful fishing both in the Keiskamma River and along the coast. It is also well known and much loved for its canoeing, windsurfing, swimming, hiking, and bird watching.

In all the unspoilt scenery, a local restaurant and a pub makes life very easy for budget travellers. Amazing shopping can be done in the nearby Xhosa arts and crafts community shop for backpackers wanting to take a piece of Africa home with them.

The town of Hamburg also houses a very important social and creative institution called the Keiskamma Art Project. This project is a community initiative that provides women in the area with skills, materials and instruction in arts and crafts.
