Sodwana Bay, North Coast, KwaZulu-Natal
Sodwana Bay is the perfect destination for holidaymakers seeking a tropical seaside escape, but who don't want to venture as far as Mozambique. The region offers gorgeous white, sandy beaches and warm weather all year round.
Scuba diving is one of the major activities here, with daily charters taking divers out to the protected, unspoilt coral reefs. Sodwana also has a multitude of outdoor, adventurous sporting activities on offer - from quad-biking to horse-riding on the sandy dunes. Those who love the outdoors are spoilt for choice.
Fishing is another well-loved past-time. Deep sea fishing as well as on-shore fishing are sure to put a smile on any fisherman's face, with varieties such as Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Striped Marlin and Sailfish passing through the waters.
Aside from the various sporting activities available, Sodwana Bay has a family-friendly dining scene and one of the most popular places to eat out is The Drunken Tree, a fun bar and grill which has enough space for even the biggest family groups.
