KwaZulu Natal's South Coast accommodation and activities stretch over 150kms from Amanzimtoti to Port Edward near the Wild Coast. .
South Coast Holiday Playground
The KZN South Coast is the holiday playground of all-year-round brilliant sunshine, blue sea and golden beaches. South Coast hikers and nature lovers will enjoy the fantastic scenery of the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve near Port Shepstone. Or maybe take a leisurely game drive through the Vernon Crookes Nature Reserve
KZN South Coast Holiday Resorts include South Coast Bed and Breakfasts and an abundance of South Coast self catering accommodation. South Coast holiday accommodation and residential areas nestle in amongst the sub-tropical forests, the lush green foliage sheltering stunning birdlife. Troops of vervet monkeys are regularly seen providing amazing acrobatic displays.
KZN South Coast - One of the best shark dives in the world
The South Coast is a scuba divers paradise, Aliwal Shoal being most popular with as many as 40 000 dives taking place annually. Protea Banks further south is considered to be one of the best shark dives in the world. Scuba Diving enthusiasts from all over the world pour in to the South Coast self catering cottages. Accommodation in Umkomaas and Clansthal are particularly popular. There are a few south coast bed and breakfasts in Umkomaas and the surrounding areas - these for the Scuba divers who enjoy the attention of the B&B hosts.
The South Coast Sardine Run
The KZN South Coast also offers one of the finest angling areas worldwide. This includes South Coast rock and surf fishing as well as ski boat fishing. Each year shoals of Sardines migrate from the Cape and swim up along the KZN South Coast, hugging the coastline. The sea currents bring them ever closer to shore. Hot on their tails are large numbers of predatory big-game fish which chase them into the shore break providing marvellous opportunities for anglers who so often scoop the little silver fish into nets and baskets.. This event is what's known as the Sardine Run. South Coast self catering beach cottage accommodation becomes very popular during these Winter weeks whilst South Coast B&B also report business success. On the odd occasion the Sardine run has proved disappointing because the ocean temperature has been too high, but there is more than enough South Coast activity available to compensate. Whilst the South Coast accommodation is so popular during the South Coast Sardine Run, it is advisable to book way in advance, especially if you are after some of the South Coast beachfront accommodation options. Although the KZN North Coast has become exceptionally popular, it is remarkably more expensive than South Coast self catering cottages and the Sardines very rarely reach the KZN North Coast shores.
Top rated South Coast golf courses
The larger towns on the South Coast are Margate and Port Shepstone. Within a one hour leisurely drive from Margate there are no less than nine excellent 18-hole golf courses. Amongst the more popular South Coast golf courses is The Wild Coast Country Club, Southbroom Golf Club, San Lameer Golf Resort, Margate Golf Club, and Selborne Golf Estate.
If you are a golf enthusiast and wish to enjoy South Coast self catering accommodation on a golf estate, then San Lameer and Selborne Golf Estate are excellent options. Both South Coast golf resorts also offer catered accommodation, if you prefer to be spoilt.
The South Coast area includes, among the many South Coast accommodation options, numerous nature reserves, shopping malls, arts and crafts shops, trails as well as a crocodile farm. The Mzamba Craft Village is on the opposite side of the Umtamvuna River accross the bridge from The Wild Coast Sun. The crafts people at Mzamba Craft Village chern out a constant stream of baskets, beadwork, pottery, leatherwork and beading - this is a must during a KwaZulu Natal South Coast visit.
South Coast Accommodation
South Coast accommodation options should not only be confined to South Coast Bed and Breakfast and hotel options. There are hundreds of South Coast Self catering beachfront units that are extremely popular over the school holidays. South Coast self catering accommodation should be booked way in advance for school holidays. There are some very well positioned beachfront South Coast hotels in towns like Margate, Ramsgate and the Cutty Sark Hotel in Scottburgh.

Happy Wanderers Caravan Park in Kelso, Margate Caravan Park and Hibberdene Caravan Parks, Mittenwald Caravan Park in Munster and Port O' Call Caravan Park in Trafalgar. These are all popular KZN South Coast Caravan Parks and some are positioned directly on the beaches. South Coast Bed and Breakfast options can rate from "affordable" to 4-star and 5-star.
