Ramsgate is an extremely popular holiday town, especially with locals. This is in part because the fishing is good, and rocks off the shore abound with mussels.
Bird watching is excellent in this part of KwaZulu Natal - 386 species have been recorded, more than a third of all bird species recorded in South Africa.
