A Secure and secluded beach bush resort, "The Merry Crab" is carved out of the Indian Ocean's lush, tropical Admiralty Reserve and is only a pathway away from a beach so pretty, film-makers have used it for movie sets! The poolside lapa is a popular rendezvous where guests gather to discuss "The biggest wave", "The one that got away" or the "The almost hole in one"!

The Merry Crab's 1 & 2 bed roomed units can accommodate up to 40 guests.

Fresh linen (including bath towels) is supplied. Each cabana has its own fully equipped kitchen (stove, microwave, fridge), DStv and built-in braai. Inside large paddle fans lazily stir the air while a faint sea breeze is always apparent on the sun-decks. Secure parking is provided.

The Merry Crab is 10 minutes north of the Wild Coast Casino, 15 minutes south of the Margate Airport and 2 hours from the new King Shaka International Airport, Durban.
