The North Coast is one of South Africa’s most popular and most beautiful holiday spots.
Watch dolphins frolic in the shorebreak, experience the beauty of the rockpools
that frame the coastline and wander inland, getting a taste for the heart of
Kwa-Zulu Natal, rich in history, culture and flavour.
The beautiful region stretches from the Tongaat river south of Ballito to the Amatikulu river, with numerous resorts nestled along the coast and wide open spaces in between. It is the frequent sighting of bottlenose dolphins playing in the Indian ocean waves thathas resulted in the area being called “The Dolphin Coast”.
The main coastal resort town of Ballito is only a30 minute drive from Durban, and the area offers a relaxing “small coastal village” holiday atmosphere, with the necessary infrastructure for any business, shopping and entertainment needs.
The Dolphin Coast has a number of seaside resorts, within close driving distance. Each has a wonderful village atmosphere. Starting with Ballito in the south, you can follow the coastal road to Thompson’s Bay, Salt Rock and Sheffield Beach. Beyond this you can explore the wonders of Tinley Manor and Amatikulu.
