About Pinnacles Seaside Unit

Found just an hours drive from Durban and situated in the Paradise of the Kingdom of KwaZulu Natal is Pinnacles Seaside Unit. Housed in an original 1938 South Coast beach cottage with high pitched ceilings and Oregon-pine floors; Pinnacles is an incredibly spacious and comfortable self catering family unit.

We are located just 80 meters from the ocean and a short stroll to the main swimming beach of “Tweni” with its protected shark nets and life guards on duty in season. A paddling pool for the little ones, a “Granny’s Pool for the family and the great open ocean for those more adventurous ones, who wish to fish, surf or dive. With rocks laden with mussels and sightings of dolphins, whales and sea turtles as well as the spectacular annual "Sardine Run" an added bonus, welcome to our bit of heaven.

With the ocean being so close one is able to fall asleep with the sound of the waves breaking on the shore and then get up early in the morning and take a walk on the beach to see the sun rise over the ocean whilst the last of the ghost crabs scamper back to their holes in the sand.
