Far from the Madding Crowd, yet an easy drive to all amenities.

It is on an unspoilt beach of about a kilometre which stretches from Banana Beach to Melville. The one end of the bay has excellent fishing with rock pools while the other end is a popular surfing beach with shark nets, life guards and a tidal pool.

Hibiscus Coast is centrally situated between Durban and Port Edward, therefore ideal for visitors who want to sightsee or for golfers who wish to play golf.
