Illovo Beach Accommodation

Illovo Beach, found along the South Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal, is a tranquil breakaway for urbanites that work and live in the heart of Durban central. Despite its close proximity to the metropolis, life here starkly contrasts to the hustle and bustle of city living. Locals are warm and hospitable while the holiday resort offers visitors, a peaceful and quiet weekend away. 

Illovo Beach is a popular fishing spot for anglers, with the warm waters being home to an abundance of kob, shad and Garrick. Due to the region’s sub-tropical climate, bathers can swim year-round. Plenty of activities can be enjoyed on the spacious beach, where children can build sandcastles while adults can take part in boisterous games of volleyball.

Apart from soaking up the sunshine, there is plenty to explore in the surrounding areas. A visit to Crocworld Conservation Centre should be on the itinerary of any holidaymaker. As the name might suggest, Crocworld is home to over 100 crocodiles. While the sight of these mighty reptiles basking in the sun might be rather intimating to the faint-hearted, rest assured in knowing that they are housed in secure enclosures. Be on the lookout for the centre’s oldest resident, the 111-year-old-year-old crocodile called Henrey, who weighs in at 750 kilograms.

Escape the scorching heat by taking a trip to ‘The Galleria’Amanzimtoti’s prime spot for indoor family entertainment and shopping. The centre offers an array of family-orientated activities, such as mini-golf, ice skating, or watching a flick at one of the twelve movie houses. Those who like to keep up with seasonal trends can peruse the boutique stores for all the latest fashions. Discerning foodies are spoilt for choice at the many restaurants, which not only offer fine cuisine but also provide sea views.
