KwaZulu Natal DestinationsSheffield Beach, Dolphin Coast

Just north of Salt Rock and virtually ten minutes from Ballito, is the beautiful beach of Sheffield with its sheltered coves and wonderful rock pools that invite little people to spend hours collecting shells and admiring sea anemones.

Renowned as one of the better fishing and diving spots on the Dolphin Coast, snorkelling here is a way of life, and if you want to know where to fish, just follow the local fishermen who head out here on a daily basis to partake of nature’s bounty.

There are certain spots on the beach that afford the most spectacular views of the coastline and, in similar fashion to Salt Rock and Blythedale, Sheffield is increasingly being regarded as yet another suburb of Durban, as property in Umhlanga becomes a little thin on the ground. But as yet, the coast is unspoilt and there are regular sightings of dolphins and whales in season.

Sheffield beach, Salt Rock and Tinley Manor all benefit from intricate reef formations that move beneath the waves just off the beaches. Not only do these offer scuba divers and snorkel specialists a variety of sea life, but spear-fishing is also extremely popular and crayfish frequent the many nooks and crannies - although one needs a licence if one is to partake. That goes for oysters and mussels as well.
