We enjoy a sub-tropical climate with average summer temperatures of 24°C - 30°C and winters, not much cooler, with temperatures averaging between 22°C and 24°C.
Situated just 30 minutes north of Durban, Santorini is flanked to the east by golden beaches and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean which makes this the ideal area to seek North Coast holiday accommodation. The Dolphin Coast, as this area is otherwise named, gets its name from the many Bottlenose dolphins, which frequent this section of the warm Indian Ocean. These golden beaches have many sheltered coves and the swimming beaches are protected by shark nets and attended by professional Life Savers.
