Make your way down to the south coast of KwaZulu-Natal and you will find a local treasure – the cosy, welcoming town of Margate, and the resort of Margate Sands, a new home away from home for you and the kids. South Coast folk are great hosts – warm and friendly, and this applies to the service and atmosphere at Margate Sands too. The town of Margate may be small, but don’t be fooled! For what it lacks in size, it makes up for in natural beauty, unspoiled beaches and plenty of fun activities for adults and children alike.
Margate Sands is roughly an hour and half drive outside of Durban and is an impressive high-rise development consisting of 63, three-bedroom apartments, each with a private balcony offering sweeping views of the KwaZulu-Natal coastline. If you have nothing but sunning yourself beside the resort pool on your mind, you have come to the right place. Plenty of entertainment is available to keep the kids busy, including a games room, adventure golf and private beach access just metres away.
Margate Sands also offers a Cellu-Beauty wellness spa, ideal for soothing all your aches and pains and melting away the stresses of your busy work days. Just a stone’s throw from the resort are a number of restaurants and pubs where you can kick your diet to the curb and indulge those holiday cravings. Explore the south coast from Margate Sands with ease. Visit one of the many stunning beaches that stretch along the coastline, treat the kids to a day at Butterfly Valley, dive with the ultimate predator during a shark cage dive, take a giant leap into the abyss with the Oribi Gorge Wild Swing or slow things down and eat your way along the coast at a choice of local restaurants and cafes.
Margate Sands Resort is a great escape from city life, where the pace of small town life and the rugged, natural beauty of the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast will creep into your heart and keep you coming back year after year.
