Discover the South African coastal town of Ballito nestling between the green rolling hills of the Kwa-Zulu Natal North Coast, and the blue rolling waves of the warm Indian ocean. Experience some of the many diverse pursuits and visit enchanting locations within easy reach, or simply relax on the golden sandy beaches and soak up the African sun.
With many fabulous fairways, breathtaking beaches and so much to do, it is not difficult to see why so many people enjoy holidaying, retiring to, or even buying a second home in Ballito. Yet out of season Ballito is not wrapped up in moth-balls and deserted, but rather the town is a vibrant hub with a hectic schedule of activities through-out the year. Living in Ballito appeals to many, but in the past most have left this dream until their golden years, however with the relocation in recent years of many businesses from the Durban CBD northwards onto the Dolphin coast, the development of an excellent infrastructure, world class hospitals in close proximity, excellent local schools and boom in shopping and entertainment facilities, Ballito has seen an increase in family groups moving into the area. This generation mix gives the town it's distinctly all-round "village" charm which sets it apart from most seaboard resort towns where the lack of employment opportunities forces the younger population away.
In the Breakers
Ballito's bathing beaches are protected by nets which are checked daily by the Natal Sharks Board, and qualified life-guards keep an eye on bathers. Surfing & Body boarding - Umdloti, Willard's beach and Salt Rock are reknown for great wave action.
Upmarket Ballito is thriving with the development of the 440 hectare residential Simbithi Eco-Estate, as well as many other 'resort-style living' investments. With land becoming increasingly scarce in the elder-sister neighbourhood of Umhlanga Rocks, and King Shaka Airport, South Africa's newest international airport, less than 12 minutes away at La Mercy, the latest property growth "hot-spot" is right here!
