About " The Sugar Coast" Top

If your idea of heaven is a sub tropical climate, sun drenched beaches and golden sunsets then pack your bags and join us. With its ideal climate and safe swimming beaches Umhlanga Rocks a 5-minute drive away has been a preferred holiday destination for people visiting KwaZulu-Natal, drawing visitors both locally and from overseas.

The deep warm waters off the coast of Umhlanga Rocks are a magnet for scuba divers and snorkellers alike, where they will find the marine equivalent of the Big 5. For those less inclined to go to those depths, thereís endless opportunities for golfing, micro-liting, windsurfing, paddle skiing, para sailing, wave surfing, body boarding, tennis, beach fishing or lazing about in the sand, or simply shopping at some of the finest shopping centers in the world.

Durban is a sophisticated African city with a European style infrastructure right on our doorstep that has restaurants, cinemas, pubs and nightclubs all at prices well below European levels.

South Africaís home of the Zulu, KwaZulu-Natal invites you to discover the incredible destinations from game reserves, where you van encounter Africaís wildlife face to face, including the "Big 5", to the majestic Drakensberg mountain range that was recently declared a World Heritage site, or the Greater St Lucia Wetlands Park with its unique 38 000 hectares of lake systems, which is also a World Heritage Site and offers some of the most diverse wildlife and outdoor experiences in the country. All of this within a few hours drive of Abaca House.
