North Coast

As one heads north up the coast out of Durban towards Mozambique, the long N2 freeway bypasses some of the prettiest beaches in KwaZulu-Natal. Most of this beautiful part of the world was once a coastal dune forest system and there are still parts of it preserved in the Mangrove Swamps, and the Umgeni Bird Park bears testimony to the number of birds attracted to the area. North Coast has always been popular with anglers because the fishing is so good and the area is also known for its good surf. Enjoy the warm Indian Ocean which offers great surfing and swimming, or simply laze on the sun-drenched beaches and rocky coves.
