Best place in KwaZulu Natal to enjoy a family holiday by the beach? Most locals will point you to the sunny South Coast, and, more specifically, Margate.
The small seaside town has it all – flagship beaches, beautiful weather, coastal forests, prolific birdlife, prestigious golf estates, and restaurants of all varieties offering ocean views, fresh seafood, and so much more.
Stay at Protea @ Costa in one of their spacious self-catering units (P6), which comfortably accommodates up to six people. They’re fitted with all the necessary conveniences for you to enjoy your stay, including a TV with full DStv.
- Three bedrooms
- Two bathrooms
- An outdoor patio
Undeniably, the best feature of the unit is the ocean view.
The unit has foldaway doors that open up onto the private balcony, from where you can enjoy the views. There are also braai facilities, so get your fire started and cook some meat while watching the sun go down.
Things to do in the area
For the beach bums and sun-worshippers:
Spend your days lying on the warm sand reading books and tanning, splash about and paddle with the kids in the temperate water, make sandcastles and forts, or challenge others to friendly games of volleyball. There are many flagship beaches from which to choose, with nearby Margate Beach being the most popular.
Fill empty bellies:
Along the busy main road, there are several beachside restaurants scattered along the coastline. Our pick of the bunch is a local favourite, Keg & Galleon. Opt for a meal from their Pub Classics and Grills menu – their chicken and prawn curry comes highly recommended for patrons looking for a dish with spice.
Visit Skyline Nature Reserve, located between Uvongo and Margate. Here you’ll find a 40-year arboretum, home to over 300 indigenous tree species, prolific birdlife, blue and grey duiker, bushbuck, and other small mammals.
Hike the trails and enjoy the peace and quiet, and the dense, unspoilt foliage.
With numerous species of fish and large groups of sharks congregating around diving sites, scuba diving or snorkelling is a must-do for those wanting to check out the diverse underwater world.
