KwaZulu Natal is a province that receives much tourism throughout the duration of the year and it is a well-known fact that much of this has to do with its coastline. With the help of Optima Holidays, you can find yourself a lovely place at which to stay during your vacation amidst the available self-catering holiday accommodation. South Coast is especially scenic and rich in marine life making it an intriguing spot at which to lodge for a week-long vacation.
The South Coast, much like the rest of Durban, has a warm climate that lasts all year round. The area's maritime climate is also important in regulating temperatures over the area ensuring warm temperatures during the day as well as the evening after the sun has set. This kind of weather makes going out to restaurants, lounges and nightclubs during the evening an enjoyable activity so you will certainly have a blast staying in South Coast whether it is daytime or night.
When the sun is up during the day, you may feel compelled to go out and admire the natural features of South Coast. Crystal clear waters can be found in blue lagoons along certain parts of the coastline where turbulent seawaters have carved out interesting features in seaside rocks. The "golden" sands on the beach are difficult to avoid no matter what your personal preferences. You may not enjoy being in the water and prefer to sunbathe or read a book instead while soaking up the sun. However you choose to spend your time, staying in the South Coast will still be an enjoyable activity.
Several of the beaches on the south coast have been officially declared safe for swimming by being given the International 'Blue Flag' check marker. Ramsgate, Lucien and Marina Beach are three such beaches. So if you've been thinking of scuba-diving or snorkelling, head out to one of these beaches and enjoy yourself. South Coast has a rich array of marine life so these two activities will be nothing short of an absolute pleasure for those that love oceanic life.
South Coast is also popular with the surfers of the world so get on a board and try and catch a wave if you can. The Oribi Gorge is a great place to go abseiling for those that like to scale rock walls. The views at this location are astounding making it one of the region's great attractions. Another such attraction is an annual event that recurs every winter; the Sardine Run is a spontaneous migration of sardines to the South Coast. Along with these myriads of sardines come groups of dolphins and larger fish that feed on the smaller ones. The event is a spectacle on its own but also an opportunity to fish large quantities of sardines in a way you would not be able to at any other time of the year.
South Coast is also botanically rich with sub-tropical forests teeming with its famous hibiscus flowers making the area an amazing sight during the spring time. With all the 18-hole golf courses in South Coast, the region earned itself the nickname, 'The Golf Coast' so if you have an inclination toward this particular sport then South Coast is where you need to be.
