KwaZulu Natal DestinationsUvongo, South Coast
Part of the Hibiscus Coast, Uvongo is a welcoming town with secluded, unspoiled beaches, superb fishing spots, a nature reserve, beautiful scenery and so much more. Uvongo is named after the Ivungu River and is well known for its waterfall that plummets 23m down into the lagoon, creating one of the deepest lagoons in the country.
Uvongo is also known for its large rock escarpments thick with beautiful foliage which shelters the Uvongo beach. These shimmering waters are ideal for all watersports. There are pedal boats for hire with which one can explore the river more fully. Beside the river runs a footpath which flows to the Uvongo River Nature Reserve. There is a lovely children’s paddling pool situated on the grassy banks shaded by trees. So bring that picnic basket full of snacks and enjoy a fun family outing.
Spend the day relaxing on flawless beaches or snorkelling in the warm waters that flow across the shoreline. Hawkers can be found on the beach selling their fruit, basketry and craft. For a break from the beach life, there are numerous sporting facilities in the area as well as a spectacular 9-hole golf course nearby.
A must is to plan a visit to the Uvongo Bird Park. This amazing park offers walk-through aviaries where a diversity of vibrant bird life can be discovered. Enjoy refreshing drinks or tea in the garden while the children enjoy themselves in the play-park.
The accommodation and other amenities are all nestled in beautiful settings offering the most magnificent views. With safe swimming, excellent amenities, great food, magnificent views from the beach side restaurant, Uvongo is a bustling holiday town that has much to offer the visitor.
