MARGATE has made it to Coca-Cola’s list of the world’s summer destinations of choice.

The Coca-Cola Share a Coke summer campaign is back and while it had us grappling through Coke cans and bottles in search for our names two years ago this year the company decided to turn it up a notch and attach the world’s best summer destinations.

On the esteemed list are holiday havens like Ibiza, Miami, Hawai, Bali and the South Coast’s Margate.

A voting process was used, where teenagers could vote for their favourite holiday destinations and Margate qualified.

“The campaign is expected to increase investments in the South Coast and return Margate back to its former glory as a top class holiday destination of choice,” said Petro Malherbe, special events team leader at Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa in Port Shepstone.

Catch the Coca-Cola team on South Coast beaches Margate, Scottburgh, Uvongo, St Michaels and Hibberdene to join in the “summer campaign” fun this December starting at Margate beach on December 15.
