Sheffield Beach lies on the subtropical Dolphin Coast of South Africa's famed
KwaZulu-Natal Province. Sheffield Beach is the most northern resort town on the
Dolphin Coast. Situated just 48km (30 miles) north of Durban's vibrant
attractions, and a stone's throw from the bustling resort of Ballito, Sheffield
Beach offers visitors the best of both worlds. While one can relax in the
tranquility of pristine beaches with sparkling rock pools teeming with sea life,
just down the road you will find an abundance of restaurants, pubs, clubs,
cinemas and shops.
The rocks of Sheffield Beach give way to a perfect bathing area, while the
nearby coastline offers some beautifully sheltered coves and superb rock pools,
providing for excellent snorkelling. Further from the shore there are
magnificent reef formations offering a variety of sea life, where scuba diving
and spear-fishing is also extremely popular. Crayfish, oysters and mussels can
also be seen here although a license is needed if one plans to partake.
Other activities on offer in the area include surfing, horse riding and golf.
Another attraction of Sheffield Beach is The Kingdom, a multicultural village
which boasts craft stalls and restaurants serving local cuisine, plus energetic
Zulu dancing shows while you dine! Whatever your interests, Sheffield Beach
offers accommodation to suit all tastes.
Accommodation includes B&B guest villas and several comfortable self-catering
establishments, chalets, cottages, maisonettes, houses and apartments. Sheffield
Beach is one of the Dolphin Coast's best kept secrets.
