About

Villa Capri’s striking Italian architecture certainly stands out from the crowd, but this is far from the only reason to choose this impeccable guest house as a home-from-home when visiting the laidback beach town of Ballito.

Set in lovely sub-tropical gardens, the villa offers seven extremely comfortable guest rooms, attentive service and all the facilities needed for guests to kick back and enjoy an idyllic break from modern life. To put the icing on the cake, the beach and a variety of restaurants, shops and nightspots are a short walk away, while Durban is a 50 km drive south.

Guests will be put at ease by the homely decor of the rooms, which are luxuriously appointed with air conditioning, ceiling fans, flatscreen satellite televisions, bar fridges, tea coffee facilities, safes and wireless internet.

The ground floor rooms lead out onto the gardens and huge swimming pool, while guests on the upper floor can recline on balconies with ornate Italian-style balustrades and picturesque views of the Indian Ocean. Every room has a classy modern en-suite bathroom with both a bath and shower. 

Couples can choose one of three double rooms with Queen-size beds, or treat themselves to a stay in the elegant, very spacious VIP Luxury Room, which has a gorgeous bathroom with twin basins. Couples with a child are well accommodated in one of two family rooms with a Queen-size and single bed. A separate family room comfortably sleeps four guests in a Queen room linked to a twin room.

No matter where they stay, all guests can look forward to an excellent breakfast in the morning. Ballito’s temperate climate allows this Continental and English feast to be enjoyed in a variety of outdoor settings, ranging from the stylishly-appointed lapa, to the landscaped garden or the sea-facing upstairs balcony.

During the heat of the day, guests can plunge into the swimming pool or laze on the sun loungers. The lapa’s braai facilities are available for the use of all guests, and cook-ups can be enjoyed while watching big sporting events on the television.  In the evenings or during the rare spell of inclement weather, there are two cosy lounges to retreat to with a drink from the honesty bar in hand.

The area around Villa Capri holds a treasure trove of attractions to keep tourists of all ages busy, ranging from golf courses to shopping malls, scuba diving and fishing.

North Coast

KwaZulu Natal

About

Stretching some 110km from Umhlanga to the Amatikulu River, the North Coast is as diverse as it is spectacular. The old North Coast Road is the best way to access the region. It follows the edge of the Indian Ocean, crossing the lagoons and estuaries of the Umhlanga, Umdloti, Mvoti and Tugela Rivers. It then weaves through fields of sugar cane and patches of indigenous forest.

Over the years, the North Coast has changed from a few sleepy little towns of local farmers’ beach cottages to a hugely popular tourism centre. It draws hundreds of thousands of annual visitors and offers something for just about everyone.

The towns range from Zinkwazi, as relaxed and serene as anywhere on the entire South African coast, to the bustling Umhlanga with its big-town feel. In-between is Ballito, a holiday destination par excellence where tourists are welcomed and entertained. A host of other towns each have their own attractions.

As you’d expect, it is the beaches that are the biggest drawcard to the area and around which most of the action is centred.

Ballito in particular is a surfing mecca and hosts regular surfing competitions.

Other beaches all along the coast offer surfing, swimming and angling. Scuba diving, deep-sea fishing and boat trips can also be organised at most popular tourism towns, as can microlight flights.

Don’t for a second think that the North Coast is simply a beach and party destination. Nature is ever-present and many of the towns are surrounded by beautiful coastal bush or are close to nature reserves. Birdwatching is excellent and diverse, while blue duiker can even be spotted from the Umhlanga promenade.

Fascinating history also pops up when you delve a little deeper. King Shaka, that South African Napoleon, once ruled from a kraal in the area of KwaDukuza. A visitor’s centre, memorial and museum all celebrate and explain his life and reign. Another great Zulu man, this time a man of peace, grew up down the road in Groutville. Albert John Luthuli would later play a major part in the struggle against apartheid and would become the first African to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

The North Coast has always been the trendier part of KwaZulu-Natal’s long and spectacular coastline. It’s more developed, the hotels are bigger and it just feels like there is more on the go. There is an incredible amount to do, things to see and places to stay.

Look out for

Mount Moreland – every year an estimated three million barn swallows spend the South African summer at a wetland on Mount Moreland, not far from the coastal town of Umdloti. From around October to April, this huge concentration of tiny birds can be viewed coming in to roost en masse. Take a few drinks or a picnic and your deckchairs and have a sundowner while this immense flock fills the sky.

King Shaka Heritage Route – King Shaka forged the Zulu nation and ultimately shaped the future of South Africa. On this route you can find out a bit more about this fascinating character. You can visit spots such as Observation Rock, from where he watched his impis train. You can also see the pool where he bathed, the site of his burial, and the tree under which he is reputed to have been assassinated.

The Gateway Shopping Centre - on the other side of the scale is Gateway, a huge shopping centre in Umhlanga that caters for absolutely everyone. Rainy days can be spent watching movies, rock-climbing, bowling, driving go-karts and much, much more. There are obviously also plenty of shops and restaurants.

The KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board – offers interesting insights into these denizens of the deep. Educational tours are held, as are regular shark dissections.

Birding – the North Coast is home to an estimated 460 bird species, including rarities such as finfoot, green twinspot, bat hawk and black coucal. It’s not necessary to visit nature reserves to spot them either, although you will have better luck at places like the Zinkwazi lagoon or the Harold Johnson Nature Reserve.

Adventure – scuba diving (or learning to scuba dive) is great for family bonding. The North Coast has a number of operators who offer this. Other chances for adventure include excellent mountain biking, quadbiking, paintball and horse riding.

Microlight flights – and helicopter flips give wonderful perspectives of this long and beautiful coastline. You’ll see how urban spread has affected the cane and bush, as well as just how much remains intact. Whales and dolphins are often spotted on such flights.

Dining decadence- be it high tea or a curry buffet at the sensational Oysterbox, a prawn feast at the Amatikulu Prawn Shack, or the Ballito Prawn and Jazz Festival.
