Island Vibe was borne out of the passion for travel that Loren and his wife, Taise, share. On returning to SA after a lengthy exploration of the world, they transformed their dream into reality and opened Island Vibe in Jbay in 1996. Since then Island Vibe has grown to include an English Language School, Adventures, Surf School and backpackers in both Knysna and Port Elizabeth. At Island Vibe, they strive to produce the platform where visitors can create memories. Real People. Real Travel.
