Heralded for its golden beaches and warm the embrace of the Indian Ocean, the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) South Coast stands is the ultimate beach-lover’s destination. As we continue to explore our beautiful province, the Tourism KwaZulu-Natal team was recently hosted here where travellers are greeted by a strikingly blue ocean blue scenery.
The elegant and luxurious Umthunzi Hotel in Port Shepstone boasts warm and friendly staff and hotel services cater to a traveller’s every need. This type of care can be found everywhere in the area, which is celebrated for the hospitable and relaxed people living there.
Besides sun and sea, the South Coast has loads more to see and experience. The BBS farm is a must-visit. Headed by three local women who farm tomatoes and macadamia nuts. Melding tourism and agriculture with community and development, BBS is a symbol of a sustainable, socially-driven tourism of the future.
If good food is important, don’t miss out on the fare at Honeywood Cellar. Incorporating local flavours with international dishes, the Honeywood Cellar offers visitors a rustic and homely atmosphere.
One cannot visit the South Coast without embarking on a river journey. The Umtamvuna River, which borders the Eastern Cape at the Wild Coast, promises a serene, lazy excursion with expansive vistas and rocky cliffs to take in and admire. It really does transport you into the wild side of the beautiful coast.
The KZN South Coast is a holidaymaker’s paradise. With attractions for the young or old, adventurous or laidback, the Golden Coast again promises fun, excitement and rejuvenation for the whole family!
