Attractions – Explore the South Coast

Being ± 1km from a Blue Flag protected swimming beach and ski-boat launch site, take a stroll along vast stretches of open sand to the tidal pool, explore the fantastic marine life or find a serene fishing spot.

Visitors may choose any of the numerous attractions and activities all down the length of South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal South Coast from playing a round of golf at one of ten nearby golf courses to extreme adventure in Oribi Gorge or on and in the sea choosing ones own ocean safari.
For the less adventurous there is bird watching, nature trails, lighthouses and arts & crafts.

  • Fishing & Whale Watching

    Hibberdene have a launch site and various charters to choose from. Or you can wander down to our beach and fish off the beach or rocks. During our fantastically mild winter months you can also watch the amazing annual sardine run (if mother nature obliges). Bring a good pair of binoculars as there are frequently whales to be spotted from our viewing deck. Alternatively you can go on a whale watching trip – a stunning experience. The Hibberdene Couta Classic is held over the Easter weekend every year.
