North Coast, KwaZulu-Natal, is renowned for its endless beaches and breath-taking scenery. It is the place where the great Zulu King, Shaka, was buried, and features dozens of sites linked to this warrior and his legacy. The North Coast stretches from Zimbali in the south to the Thukela River in the north. While beaches, battle sites and heritage routes comprise the major North Coast attractions, the coastal towns of Ballito, Salt Rock, Umdloti and Zinkwazi offer up endless North Coast activities. KwaZulu-Natal’s North Coast is also known as the Dolphin Coast due to the hundreds of bottlenose dolphins that frequent this part of the coast. They can be seen all year round, frolicking in the warm waters just offshore.
