Boasting the highest number of Blue Flag beaches in KZN, as well as being the chosen site for the launch of this year’s KZN Summer Campaign, the KZN South Coast is on track to welcome an influx of holidaymakers looking to beat the summer heat this festive season.
“We saw a surge in tourism numbers in the final week of 2022, and with our beaches open and ready for holidaymakers once again, we’re anticipating big tourist numbers throughout the summer season,” says Phelisa Mangcu, CEO of South Coast Tourism and Investment Enterprise (SCTIE). “Visitors are often drawn to our fantastic beaches and world-class dive sites, but quickly discover there is so much more to the KZN South Coast. From hiking excursions and extreme adventures in the hinterland, to township tours and cultural experiences throughout the region, the Paradise of the Zulu Kingdom has something for everyone.”
Mangcu said, while they encourage visitors to take advantage of the many beautiful beaches, it’s vital that all safety precautions are adhered to at all times. Safety measures include:
The KZN South Coast also plays host to a number of fantastic events geared towards holidaymakers during the festive season. This year, visitors to Uvongo, St Michael’s, Ramsgate, Margate, Scottburgh, Hibberdene, and Marina beaches will enjoy the free Let’s GO Summer Beach Festival running from 14 December to 14 January with non-stop fun and games. There are also Christmas markets, gin festivals, performances and more to enjoy. These can be found by downloading the free ‘Explore KZN South Coast’ app, or visiting the website and checking out the Events Calendar.
Visitors can stay in any of the great accommodation offerings, from resorts and hotels, to guesthouses and award-winning beachside campsites and caravan parks. There are also top-notch restaurants, cafés, pubs, takeaway establishments and more for the hungry traveller.
