BBlessed with warm water, robust waves and seemingly endless stretches of sandy beaches, you'll soon understand why Durban (eThekwini) is everyone's favourite seaside playground. Warm and sunny most of the year, Durban's beaches offer public amenities, protective shark nets, beacons to indicate safe bathing and lifeguards on duty for most of the day.
KwaZulu-Natal is home to pristine, perfect beaches, and here they are:
Margate Beach, South Coast
A choice destination for domestic holidaymakers, Margate is a popular bathing beach fringing a holiday town of the same name.
Ramsgate, South Coast
A nice stretch of beach combined with a warm lagoon makes this Blue Flag beach a holiday favourite with families, especially during the school holidays.
UUmzumbe, South Coast
Umzumbe (Pumula) lies on the Hibiscus Coast. This is a beautiful and unspoiled beach with dense coastal vegetation extending to the sand. There is a small tidal pool and lifeguards are on duty.
Addington Beach, North Coast
Even though it's less busy compared to nearby beaches, Addington Beach's protected location close to the Harbour makes it a perfect beach for family members as well as for those looking to unwind far away from the throngs of people. The warm Indian Ocean causes it to be an excellent swimming beach.
