Accommodation near Thompson's Bay Beach

Thompson Bay Beach is located in Thompson's Bay, a small resort on KwaZulu Natal's North Coast. It is situated north of Ballito and just south of Shaka's Rock. The beach is located a mere 16 kilometres (approximately 10 minutes) from King Shaka International Airport on the North Coast.

Thompson Bay Beach is a sheltered cove that proves perfect for swimming. Furthermore it is a Blue Flag beach, meaning that it is managed in an environmentally responsible way and that the facilities are well-maintained. There are life guards on duty in the high season and the beach is protected by shark nets. It is also a popular spot among anglers.

Charlie's Pool, an Olympic sized tidal pool is another popular feature of the beach, offering endless opportunities for fun, which will keep both the young, and the young-at-heart occupied. Charlie's Pool was built by and named after Charles de Charmoy, an early settler in the area. It is surrounded by lots of small rock pools which, when explored, offer a glimpse into an underwater world which children especially find difficult to resist.

The rock pools also make nice cool tubs to soak in while enjoying the brilliant North Coast sun. The other secluded coves along the coast also add some extra interest to the Thompson Bay Beach.

Just south of Thompson Bay Beach is Hole in the Wall, a rock formation caused by consistent wave erosion over the years. This fascinating natural structure marks the beginning of a marine trail that goes up to High Rock. High Rock is reportedly where King Shaka's warriors were ordered to cliff dive into the turbulent waters below to test their courage! Today it is a favoured fishing area.
