Park Rynie, South Coast

Park Rynie is situated in the Umdoni Coast in KwaZulu Natal. Park Rynie is a small village, tranquil and unique, offering excellent holiday getaways. Rocky Bay is a beautiful swimming beach with shark nets for safe swimming as well as excellent tidal pools.

A whaling station was built here during World War I and the breakwater built by the whaling company is known as Rocky Bay Pier. The landing ramp is still in use by fishing craft and the remains of the old whaling station still lie on Rocky Bay.

Spend the day exploring and discovering or just generally relaxing whilst soaking up the sun on this beautiful unspoiled beach. There is also excellent deep-sea diving territory in these warm waters. Cowrie Reef encompasses spectacular plant and coral life, mysterious caves, gullies and swim-through’s. The marine life is vibrant and varies from small reef fish to Zambezi sharks, dolphins and game fish.

After a day’s relaxing and diving, enjoy a sumptuous feast at the local restaurant. The restaurant is renowned for excellent seafood meals and definitely worth the visit. The business centre of Park Rynie includes a caravan park. In fact, Park Rynie is a caravanner’s delight as accommodation is offered right on the beautiful beach.

Excellent tranquil and peaceful, seems to be untouched. People are friendly and helpful. Good fishing spots, camping grounds. Feels quite safe relative to other areas in South Africa.
