Sheffield Beach Accommodation

While Sheffield Beach is small and often bypassed by holidaymakers. Situated just north of Salt Rock and a ten minute drive from Ballito it is considered an undiscovered gem of the region.

The beach comprises of sheltered coves that are waiting to be explored as well as tidal pools that harbour a myriad of marine life. On a hot day, you’ll spot little children with their multi-coloured nets on the prowl for catfish, sea anemones and shells that have been washed up from ashore.

Sheffield Beach is one of the better diving spots on the North Coast due to the intricate reef formations that are found floating in amongst the waves. These reefs are home to various sea creatures, including the likes of crayfish and mussel. Due to the prevalence of the aforementioned, spear-fishing is a popular past time; however, one can only partake in the activity if a permit has been attained.

Tourists will be left feeling mesmerised at the spectacular views seen from the coastline; head down to the beach for a sundowner and watch as the sun sets over the ocean. Alternatively, long afternoon walks can lead you to Blythedale and Salt Rock Beaches; two attractions that allowing for swimming in shark-protected waters.

Sheffield has become prime property to potential homebuyers who are looking to build holiday homes. However, despite the commercialisation that has occurred within the area, the beaches are unspoilt and the area remains relatively rural. If you are looking to spend a couple of nights by the sea, there are many self-catering units that are a few minutes’ walk from the beach.

Following a morning out on the beach, keen golfers can make their way to the acclaimed Prince's Grant Golf Club. This 18-hole course, known for its formidable fairways and mounted sandy bunkers, is ranked in the top twenty estates in South Africa and is the best coastal grounds in the country. While a true challenge for both the casual and more dedicated of players, it is equally rewarding too.

While you’re enjoying your round of golf, let your kids swing from tree-to-tree (with a safety harness attached) with a Zip Line Tour in Ballito. While not suitably for the height conscious, zip lining is a safe, thrilling activity. The tour includes two beverages and a certificate upon completion.
