Events on the South Coast

2015-12-17 06:00

IT is a provable fact that our destination has in excess of 300 event days per annum which is one of the highest of any destination in South Africa.

Year after year, the popular brand companies line up to apply their beach activations which is a positive indication that our district is worthy of hosting such programmes. The South Coast is the envy of KZN when it comes to eventing for the key tourism and leisure markets who come here.

This summer season, we will present no less than 80 event days up and down the coast. It’s a case of entertainment and fun galore for our welcome visitors. Details of the comprehensive events programme can be obtained from our Visitor Information Centres or from our website

At a leisure show we recently attended in Johannesburg, one young family came to our stand and the mother said she would go nowhere else but the South Coast at the end of each year. I asked why she said that her children have the time of their lives participating in the beach activations. It’s simple - happy parents and offspring means a contented family which means a good chance they will come back time and time again.

That recipe is very evident at this time of year and already our popular beaches are filling up with eager sun worshippers and exuberant children - we are a reliable, value-adding rainbow destination.

Finally a huge welcome to all our guests and may they and our “South Coasters” have a relaxing and fulfilling time at the paradise of the Zulu kingdom.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
