The best times to go are early morning as well as early evening when you will be blessed with one of Africa’s beautiful sunrises or sunsets and may even catch a glimpse of the local school of dolphins. Don’t miss out on sunset cocktails on the verandah at the newly renovated Oyster Box Hotel.

With a view over the calm ocean and lighthouse watch as the colours of the sky change while the sun sets behind you. A wonderfully romantic setting to say ‘I do’ or even to pop that special question. For an educational experience go and visit the Natal Sharks Board. Here you can watch as a shark found in the nets is disected to try and learn more about it’s diet and behaviour.
