About Mzamba Beach

Flanked by the ever-lapping waves of the Indian Ocean and the verdant coastal vegetation of KwaZulu-Natal, Mzamba Beach is really just a lovely retreat from the big city and the worries of everyday life. This beach is situated in Port Edward, where time goes a little slower, and the sun shines almost all year round.

Mzamba Beach is relatively calm, as far as waves go. This makes it perfect for swimming and stand-up paddling, especially for families with children that want to splash around in the shallows. The long, sandy stretch of beach is perfect for romantic walks, energetic jogs, beach games, sun-bathing, or picnics. Little ones love building sandcastles under the warm sun, and feeling the temperate waters on their toes. They will also love collecting seashells and exploring the little finds in the rocky areas and pools of the beach.

There is a lot of free parking, which makes Mzamba accessible and easy for locals and tourists to visit. The ablutions are clean and are situated at the entrance to the beach area for the convenience of the visitors.

Fishermen enjoy spending days at Mzamba Beach, casting their lines and waiting for the bite. Shad, kob and dorado are just some of the species that keen anglers might take home. There are few more tranquil ways to spend a day than fishing from the beach.

There are several cafés or restaurants on and near the beach, where visitors can enjoy a good meal and refreshments between games of Frisbee or after a cool swim. There may be some vendors offering their wares along the beachfront. These all just add to the fun vibe of Mzamba Beach.

Port Edward is about two hours from Durban and the King Shaka International Airport.
