Ballito Bike Fest plays host to the 4th Motorcycle, Music & Lifestyle festival hosted by Bike Fest SA.

As one heads north up the coast out of Durban towards Mozambique, the big N2 freeway bypasses some of the prettiest beaches in KwaZulu-Natal. So, it is worth taking the smaller coastal roads, such as the M4, past Sibaya Casino, Umdloti, King Shaka International Airport and the beautiful upmarket Zimbali estate and golf course. This is where you will find the small holiday towns of Ballito, Salt Rock, Umhlali, Tinley Manor, and Zinkwazi, before making your way back onto the freeway and across the enormous John Ross Bridge to the Tugela Mouth where KZN’s biggest river, the mighty Tugela, gushes out into the Indian Ocean.

Two great South African leaders had their homes in this region and today lie buried here. King Shaka Zulu is buried near the town of Stanger, also known as KwaDukuza, and Chief Albert Luthuli is buried nearby. Albert Luthuli was the first, and one of three South Africans to be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, the other two being Mr Nelson Mandela, and Mr FW de Klerk who were jointly awarded the prize. The Luthuli Museum near Groutville provides interesting information about the life of the great South African leader, Albert Luthuli.

A large Indian community is settled on KZN’s North Coast, enlivening the area with beautiful temples, lush market gardens and farms, numerous fresh produce markets and delicious, spicy Indian cuisine.

The North Coast has always been popular with anglers because the fishing is so good. This may be due to the many sheltered lagoons which open into the Indian Ocean and which serve as nurseries for small fish and other sea creatures. The area is also known for its good surf and the internationally recognized Mr Price Pro-surfing contest, which draws competitors from all over the world, is held in Ballito annually.

A little inland from the Zulu hilltop homestead-themed Sibaya Casino is the small village of Mount Moreland. Here, a viewing site has been established for the public to come and observe an estimated 3 million barn swallows (some 13% of the world’s population) which make their way to this wetland to roost between November and April annually.

Outside the domestic holiday season and long-weekends, many of these places are quiet and peaceful. However, during the seasonal influx of vacationers, the many holiday homes, excellent restaurants and nightclubs fill up, as do the family experiences such as beach days, kiddies’ animal farms and the crocodile farm. Many visitors enjoy taking a break on mountain bike trails through the sugar cane fields and forests, or with a few rounds of golf at one of the many excellent North Coast golf courses.

Our official accommodation base for The North Coast Bike Fest is at the beautiful Lamontage Hotel.  This beautiful hotel offers direct access to Willards Beach with a hospitality pool deck which can accommodate up to 2000 festival visitors.

Cappeny Estates

Cappeny Estates is KwaZulu-Natal’s newest and arguably its most popular hydroponic strawberry farm. It is the only commercial strawberry farm in Ballito. Nestled between the rolling hills of iLembe and the Indian Ocean, a visit to Cappeny Estates is exciting as it is inspiring. The 17-hectare farm was built entirely from scratch by the Gumede Family, who are first-generation farmers and proud members of the Ballito community.

Their journey is one of research, courage and passion. It is an idea that began its first steps in 2010, in a region not synonymous for growing strawberries but sugar cane. What started from a broad vision led to extensive worldwide travels in research to various strawberry farms. Converting this vision into reality has resulted in Cappeny Estates featuring on several local and global media platforms. This is Cappeny Estates’ strawberry farming journey.

Thompsons Bay Beach

Thompson’s Bay Beach is a sheltered escape from the elements as well as from the non-stop buzz of city living. It is situated just north of Ballito and near Chakas Rock, along Marine Drive. This is a popular beach for its safe swimming conditions (because it is protected by shark nets and lifeguards), as well as for its warm waters, thanks to the Indian Ocean.

Because it is nestled in a cove, Thompson’s Bay Beach enjoys protection from the wind too, making it a fabulous option on days when other beaches may leave you feeling sandblasted. There is also a massive tidal pool, which is great for little ones to explore. Visitors may want to try snorkelling here too. However, sea urchins sometimes make the tidal pool a little tricky to navigate, so those wanting to venture into these waters may just need to check out the conditions first. This pool is known as Charlie’s Pool and, when the urchins aren’t around, is a fantastic spot for the whole family.

Chaka’s Rock is visible from Thompson’s Bay Beach, and is acclaimed as a top fishing spot in KwaZulu-Natal. Bring your rod along and try your hand at catching a big one for the table. Or, simply walk or jog on the warm sands to get the most out of your Thompson’s Bay experience.
