The beaches along South Africa’s Wild Coast. are spectacular, but also remote — no cafes or beach vendors, chairs, umbrellas or modern comforts, other than those you bring.

I recently spent a few days with friends at their beach shack at Mbotyi on the Wild Coast. But as I don’t fish and don’t much enjoy sitting in the sun, I opted to wander around, hunting for interesting things to photograph when we visited beaches in the area.

This piece of coast is quite magical so, in addition to the small things, it’s almost obligatory to snap a few seascapes while you’re there:
