Southbroom, South Coast

Situated on the South Coast of KwaZulu Natal, Southbroom is a flourishing, up-market village with so much to offer holidaymakers! In fact, it has been considered as the ‘jewel’ of the South Coast.

Southbroom's wealth of vegetation is undoubtedly one of its finest assets. Because strict environmental principals pertaining to all development have been implemented over many years, Southbroom's unique semi-rural character has been well preserved.

Southbroom is buried in a tropical paradise and offers a relaxed lifestyle for residents and holidaymakers of all ages. The beaches are pristine and magnificent boasting warm waters and stunning tropical fish. The stillness and tranquillity of these superb beaches are ideal for simply relaxing and unwinding. Its beautiful bay is protected by shark nets and therefore perfect for surfers and scuba divers alike. There are tidal pools ideal for children to splash around and have fun in. For those who enjoy fishing, enjoy the delight in the numerous rocky coves off the shores of Southbroom.

One of the most popular golf courses on the lower South Coast of KwaZulu Natal can be found in Southbroom. Being an integral part of the Southbroom village, the course boasts a rare South African layout with palm trees and tropical foliage. Only a stone's throw away from the Indian Ocean, the Southbroom Golf Club affords golfers’ remarkable views of spotless beaches. Each of the 18-holes has its own unique feature and ability to test the skill of even the most accomplished golfer.

Southbroom is also home to the magnificent Frederika Nature Reserve. This reserve encompasses nearly 8 hectares of established dune forests as well as lush indigenous forests. It is regarded as extremely fragile in terms of the complex eco-system. This priceless strip of land was donated by the late Leo Dreissen, shortly before his death in 1977 to the S.A. Nature Conservation.

With luxury accommodation, a bowling green, tennis courts, a top-class 18-hole golf course, beach front restaurants and so many other amenities, Southbroom has something to offer everyone. Enjoy true tranquility and pleasure and spend your holiday in Southbroom in KwaZulu Natal.

We always enjoy our family holiday in Southbroom. There is so much to do in the area but mostly we end up spending our days on the beach which is fabulous for the kids too. Lots of nice places to eat in the evenings. Makes for a very relaxing holiday!
