    Blue Marlin did a major revamp looking good great food and atmosphere in Scottburgh also one of the major fish restaurants opening where the wimpy was CTFM or John Dory's.
    I think its picking up the next hotel is Cutty Sark that requires a refurb!

    Oh the one with the official nude beach. You choose your destinations carefully I see.

    Yes the South Coast is the best place to be. I just came back from 2 weeks in the WC and I must say it is nice and clean grass next to the roads are nice and short. There ocean is nice calm, clean and cold but dead the sea live is very limited in the tidal pools.

    The North coast is also splendid but be prepared to travel.

    John Dory's, they were working inside it/refurbishing, I was there over Easter weekend.

    Stayed in Pennington, it was nice, the beaches there and at Rocky Bay and Scottburgh were good and not to crowded or too empty.

    My lawn gets mowed twice a week and it still looks untidy by day 3!

    Unfortunately our climate is not easy to keep things clean and tidy, Shelley Beach is officially one of the most corrosive enviroments on the planet! The rest of the South Coast is not far behind!

    Maintenance is a huge task on the coast! I do not deny that the authorities are a little slack at times, but if the lawn is slightly longer than what you are used to at home, bear in mind that it is probably only a weeks worth of growth!

    Further business on the coast rely on effectively 5 weeks of trade to make it through the year, it is not easy to maintain infrastructure with 5 weeks of chaos and then business taps of by up to 80%!

    I know it is difficult for those with kids at school, but if you do have the opportunity to come to the coast out of season you might be surprised!

    We are entering our best mont! April is the most moderate month of the year, it gets cooler towards July, but will still be pleasant for most! August unfortunately becomes windy that can last till past December most years

    Glenmore Sands is not in Port Edward but in Glenmore about 10km north of Port Edward. Had a lovely seafood dinner there many years ago and visited the pub often on that visit, but never actually stayed there. Used to be nice, hopefully still is. Glenmore beach was a bit of a mess then... Scores of children from nearby communities swarmed the estuary and the stench of urine was awful. Port Edward's beach was lovely this December.

    Hi Kampgat, here is some tried and tested sites: Bonamanzi, bushbabies, Flatcat and also check on the Hluhluwe UMfolozi game reserve.

    Flat cat is awesome cant go wrong with that one

    Ex-valie here - but I'm a local now so... Have to say that as far as I've seen and talked to people during walkabouts, there is just less people coming on holiday, north coast, south coast, wild coast, moz, pretty much everywhere. And with less money comes the less pretty. Sadly.
    Have to admit though that I was pleasantly surprised by Munster. The place is clean, neat and cheap. The main beach had old zibi bins (you could see an original zibi print!!), which were actually used. The public beach-shower did actually work, and a little kiosk is operated to support the life guarding station. So no hawkers. o_O
    As far as south coast goes, I would recommend that little town.

    We were in Munster over this past long weekend, and had unwelcome visitors gain entry to our unit while we were sleeping.

    According to a mate from 'Toti, crime appears to be rife on the South Coast. Southbroom seemed to be a great place though with obvious maintenance and upkeep.

    Not sure whether we will go back soon, probably head north to Kosi for our next break.

    Sorry about hear about your incident. That would change everything about a holiday experience.
    We were right next to you in glenmore sands.fully enjoyed our stay.lots of Police and security patrols all day and night - adds a bit of comfort.
    enjoyed the beach - not to crowded.
    And a nice fathers day breakfast at crafty cameleon - Mac banana @ Munster and the biltong is 'oh so nice ' from the Biltong & braai shop
    Want to book again for next year.

    We have booked at Kosibaai, Jozini dam, BhangaNek & Vics camp and the rest 'we will make up as we go along'... And that will be a first for us. All our trips are always fully planned and booked.


    A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.<O</O
