Ballito Beaches



The Ballito area has a range of some of the most beautiful beaches in South Africa and something for every preference! Contrary to popular belief, many unspoilt, pristine beaches where you will not see another soul can easily be found in this area. With options ranging from busy family beaches to quiet secluded bays, exploring the area is well worthwhile. With dramatic views over the ocean, quite rock pools and open sandy beaches, there literally is something for everyone

Golf Courses



Umhlali Country Club 

In 1961 Umhlali Country Club was established as a 9 hole golf course, some years later and under the skilful hand of Peter Matkovich, the course was redesigned and a 2nd nine holes were added. Both the course and the club underwent a total transformation in 2006, still under Peters’ watchful eye, and the results speak for themselves. Today this world class 18 hole golf course has a halfway house, pro shop, golf cart hire, bowling greens, five tennis courts (of which two are floodlit), secluded swimming pool and two glass-backed squash courts
