KwaZulu-Natal - South Coast
The South Coast Travel Directory
Umdoni and the Hibiscus coast form the South Coast region of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. Sub-tropical forests, blue lagoons, golden beaches, rocky coves, the warm Indian Ocean and sunny weather make KwaZulu-Natal's South Coast a popular year-round holiday resort for both local and international visitors.
Umdoni is the magical stretch of coast and country stretching from Scottburgh to Mtwalume on KwaZulu-Natal's South Coast, or Ugu as our Zulu forefathers called it "The Edge of the Great Water". Mystical it was then and mystical it remains today.
Quite simply, the very last word in gracious and relaxed subtropical seaside living, plus thrilling, adrenalin-fuelled adventures to boot! Living up to its name, our southernmost Hibiscus Coast dazzles with iridescent blooms against a lush green backdrop, meeting a perennially-warm, saltwater playground along 70 kilometres of picture perfect hideaway coves and seemingly endless golden sands. Hibberdene, Port Shepstone, Shelly Beach, Margate, Southbroom and Port Edward form the core of this South Coast 'beach holiday mecca' of KwaZulu-Natal.
