Willard Beach, Ballito
For anyone looking to surf while on holiday, this is the place to be. There are four surf spots to choose from: Bog, Bathers, Surfers and Sunrise. It can get crowded in-season, however, so get started early.
Willard Beach is also home to many tidal pools for people to explore, with the warm Indian Ocean making swimming an enjoyable past time. Some are deep enough for amateur diving and are home to a great variety of fish and coral.
Ballito has become a haven for those seeking retail therapy while on holiday, with three large shopping centres - The Lifestyle Centre, Ballito Junction and Ballito Bay Mall - all in close proximity to each other. The seaside town also boasts a vibrant nightlife, with many beach bars, restaurants and clubs.
Be warned though, at the beginning of December thousands of matriculants descend on Ballito for the annual Rage Festival , a week-long party to celebrate the end of their school careers
