The South Coast boasts
a magnificent stretch of coastline with sub tropical forests,
blue lagoons, sunny beaches and rocky cove, and is a year round
popular holiday resort area for both local and international visitors.
The area stretches from Amanzimtoti just south
of Durban, down to Port Edward just north of the Transkei. Margate,
Port Shepstone, Scottburgh, Port Edward, sardines, golf, whales,
dolphins, the Oribi Gorge, hibiscus flowers and golden beaches
are some of the terms which people associate with this magnificent
South Coast region of South Africa and the Zulu Kingdom.
The area offers a vast array of activities from
bungi jumping to surfing and everything in between. Three beaches,
namely Ramsgate, Marina Beach and Lucien, have International 'Blue
Flag' status, and the area has also been dubbed "The Golf
Coast" thanks for the 9 excellent golf courses in the area.
Scuba diving is also extremely popular in the area with excellent
dive sites at Aliwal Shoal and Protea Banks,
The Umtamvuna Nature Reserve conserves plants
found nowhere else in the world, whilst 400 bird species have
been counted along this coastline.
Last but never least is the annual incredible
site of the sardine run - millions of sardines migrate up the
coast, accompanied by a frenzy of dolphins and other large fish
and thousands of sea birds which feed on them. The other species
it attracts are humans, who come from far and wide to scoop up
buckets of this natural harvest.
