Dolphin Coast

A 30-minute drive north of Durban the Dolphin Coast begins (KwaZulu-Natal). The name says it all, there are regularly Bottlenose dolphins seen from shore.

The Dolphin Coast stretches from the small Zimbali in the south to the Tugela River in the north. You will find small villages and beaches where lifeguards are present in the summer months. In some places there are rock pools where small children can swim safely. The place most visited by tourists is Ballito, but Shaka's Rock, Salt Rock and Sheffield Beach have fine beach resorts. Besides Dolphin Coast area is also known as Sugar Coast because of the many sugar plantations. The plantations that grow on the hills, gives the area a unique look.

The population is a mix of Zulus, Indians and Europeans. At Kwa Duzuka / Stanford you will find the King Shaka Memorial and Museum in Groutville Dukuza.

Except lazing on the beach, walking along the shore, fishing (fishing license available at post offices) and dolphin watching, you can also play golf at one of three golf courses. There are plenty of restaurants and accommodations in Ballito.
