KwaZulu Natal DestinationsSalt Rock, Dolphin Coast

The delightful village of Salt Rock is tucked away on the KwaZulu Natal northern coast just 30 minutes’ drive from Durban and offers a timeless family holiday atmosphere, wonderful beaches and large tidal pools.

Once the home of Shaka, King of the Zulus, whose maidens used to come here to collect salt to trade with and to use in the king’s household, Salt Rock is, figuratively speaking, just up the road from Ballito. When surfers aren’t riding the waves there, they’re chasing the waves on the typical Zululand sandbank / reef, just near the main beach, which offers a glassy left and right peak that breaks on rock and sand and is best early in the day.

Life guards are present on the beach every day, and aside from the beautiful beach, shell collecting, rock pools and perfect views for sighting bottle-nose dolphins, there are also restaurants, shops and several golf courses in the Ballito area and at Maidstone to entertain the avid golfer.

Flag Farm Animal Farm, in Salt Rock, is a real farmyard experience, offering children a chance to ride in carts driven by Fresians, Welsh ponies and cart horses. If that doesn’t grab their fancy, then a tractor ride or feeding chickens, milking a cow or communing with bunnies, pigs, goats and sheep will. For the parents, there’s the welcome tea garden.
