Welcome to South Coast
This 160km-long string of coast south of Durban is a surfers’ and divers’ delight (the latter because of Aliwal Shoal). Lined with similar-looking seaside resorts and suburbs running from Amanzimtoti to Port Edward, near the Eastern Cape border, it has a bit of a Groundhog Day feel about it. Most of the developments are spread out along two routes – the N2 and the R102. However, the coastal region’s sandy beaches are interspersed with some pretty gardens and grassy areas, especially in the southern section.
