Accommodation near Winklespruit Beach

Winklespruit Beach is located in the small holiday town of Winklespruit, on the South Coast of KwaZulu Natal. The town is located between Illovo and Warner Beach. It is about a half an hour from the city of Durban.

The origins of the town's name are hotly debated with some saying that it was because of a shop called Winkle (shop in Afrikaans). The shop was set up to sell the goods that were aboard a ship that wrecked on the coast of Winklespruit. Others say that it was because of the commonly-occurring periwinkle snail in the area.

Winklespruit Beach, the main beach for the town of Winklespruit, stretches on for miles, lined with beautiful vegetated dunes and characterised by inviting waves and golden sand. It is popular for swimming due to its warm Indian Ocean waters and the fact that it is protected by shark nets.

The beach has lifeguards on duty at all times during the school holidays. The beach's excellent surfing conditions make it a favourite amongst surfers of the area. It is also great for surf angling. Winklespruit Beach has an elevated rocky surface that serves as a point break dotted with fishing rods waiting for a great catch.

The lagoon makes an ideal spot for boating, canoeing, and swimming. There is a tidal pool which is great fun, as well as a large park a short way from the beach front. The park provides ample space for children to run and play and is also perfect picnics. A few minutes away from the beach is the Amanzimtoti Bird Sanctuary, also wonderful for educational entertainment for children and even more so for bird lovers.
