Kurland (often referred to as Kurland Village) is a rural township in Eden District Municipality in the Western Cape province of South Africa.

Located in the Crags area on the edge of the Tsitsikamma Nature Reserve, 20 km from Plettenberg Bay, it is said to be affected by high levels of unemployment, alcoholism, HIV and domestic violence.[2] The Crags Primary School, built in 1981, is the only school in the village.[3]
