Mtwalume Accommodation

Mtwalume is one of the many picturesque beach resorts along the Hibiscus Coast. The Hibiscus Coast is officially known as the South Coast because it stretches southwards, away from Durban, the largest city in KwaZulu Natal.

Mtwalume is a convenient little town for holidaymakers as it boasts many of the same characteristics as other small South Coast holiday towns however, its superior proximity to Durban, less than 100 kilometres, makes it a permanent winner. Furthermore despite it having plenty to offer the visitor, the destination hasn't taken off like other Hibiscus Coast towns such as Margate. As a result, when crowds are flocking to resorts up and down the coast, Mtwalume remains relatively peaceful and uncongested.

The slow pace of life there is definitely one of the town's main perks, as one can walk most places in the town, most importantly the beach. The lack of amenities there also contributes to the town remaining on the outskirts of the tourist radar, with only a couple of supply stores and some other businesses. Generally, the best bet is to get things down outside of town in places like Scottburgh.

Mtwalume boasts a great subtropical climate which is complimented by the warm Indian Ocean. The tidal pool and numerous rock pools are especially fun for swimming and exploring, while the Mtwalume lagoon is the most attention-grabbing feature of the beach.

Things to do in the down focus on the beach and include swimming, fishing and water sports which can be practised on the lagoon.

The town and the river are both named after the Mtwalume tree which was used by the Zulu inhabitants of the area for its medicinal properties.

Mtwalume Reviews

It was my first time in Mtwalume and definately will not be my last. A lovely place, very clean. My husband and I went for a few morning runs along the little roads facing the beach and ocean, absolutely loved it.
