Just north of Port Edward on the beautiful South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal is the idyllic Trafalgar Beach. It remains quiet, tranquil and absolutely stunning to see. And, whatís more, it is a Blue Flag beach, which means that it meets a number of strict criteria regarding its safety, cleanness, amenities, ecological value, and educational potential. Being awarded Blue Flag status sets Trafalgar leagues ahead as a really fabulous beach.

The water is warm, thanks to its being fed by the Indian Ocean, and the waves are frequented by keen surfers. It is also popular for swimming, body-boarding, stand-up paddling, and snorkelling; and is protected by shark nets and life guards. The marine life is intriguing to see in its natural habitat, so visitors are urged to remember their goggles and snorkel and to take a peek under the surface of the blue. There are fossil beds here that are believed to be some 90 million years old, and these offer plenty to see underwater.

The wide stretches of sandy shores are inviting for beach games, tanning, reading, or long walks. The beach is flanked by the blue and white of the sea on one side, and the lush greenery of the dune forests on the other. With this beauty, it is no wonder that Trafalgar Beach has been declared a marine reserve in some parts. It is also close to the Mpanjati Nature Reserve.

Families wanting to spend a day on Trafalgar Beach are advised to bring snacks and water along, as the appeal of the beach is that it isnít overrun with shops, hawkers and stalls. It is quiet, set away from the busy city centres and tourist hubs.

Trafalgar Beach is a little over 1.5 hours from Durban and the King Shaka International Airport.
