One of the most popular domestic holiday destinations in South Africa, the South Coast extends from the Umkomaas River just south of Durban to Port Edward on the Eastern Cape border. The towns and villages here welcome visitors with open arms and wish for their return time and again.

This is truly the land where the sun reigns supreme and dictates the actions of visitors and locals alike. When mist and rain chase them off the beaches and the sun hides away, they can stay indoors at the various entertainment centres to wait for the sun to smile on them once again.

The coastline is characterised by golden beaches and inviting waves and the inland strip features thick subtropical growth and rolling hills covered in sugar cane and forestry plantations.

The region is extremely tourism-conscious and a series of routes has been developed along the coastline to ensure that visitors do not miss out on any of the region’s attractions. Detailed maps and brochures can be obtained from most accommodation and tourism venues in the towns.
