The South Coast is magnificent for its natural beauty and the many things there are to do and see here. Its natural treasures include sprawling beaches that are lapped by the warm water of the Indian Ocean, tranquil lagoons, and rocky coves. Slightly further inland, there are subtropical forests, rolling grassy hills, and spectacular greenery. What’s more, the South Coast enjoys sunny weather almost all year round, which means that it’s also a lovely winter destination in South Africa.
This area includes a pretty stretch called the Hibiscus Coast, which is named after the colourful hibiscus trees that freckle the KZN coastline. This vibrant beauty is complemented by some great golf courses (including two of the top courses in South Africa). Those that love being outdoors will enjoy the nature reserves that showcase some gorgeous fauna and flora, and the hiking or cycling trails that wind their way through the prettiness.
The warm ocean is home to loads of colourful and unique marine species. Discover a whole new world when you explore them by snorkelling or SCUBA diving beneath the surface. Aliwal Shoal (near Umkomaas) is renowned as one of the best diving spots in the country, while Protea Banks is acclaimed for its shark diving. Formal whale-watching tours are a treat, or visitors can watch the antics of the energetic dolphins from the shores. The rivers and lagoons are great for stand-up paddling.
The whole South Coast countryside, and particularly along the many rivers and on the banks of the lagoons, is alive with a massive array of birdlife. In fact, there are hundreds of avian species her for birders to spot
