The South Coast is a collection of golden beaches, lagoons, rocky coves, grassy slopes, warm Indian Ocean waters, perpetually sunny weather, sub-tropical forests, and vegetation that draws the crowds, particularly during the festive season.
Ilanga Ntaba Guest Lodge is situated in Ramsgate on the Hibiscus Coast, named such for the perpetual Hibiscus trees in evidence along the coast, is also strewn with numerous nature reserves, hiking trails, snorkelling and diving locations, and some excellent golf courses, including two of the country’s top ten.
There are many river inlets that cut inland from the coast, and provide wonderful birdlife as well as opportunities to paddle upstream along estuaries and lagoons. Aliwal Shoal is a 50 minute drive north away (near Umkomaas)which is a diving destination of note, while Protea Banks is deemed one of the world’s top shark dives.
The Ramsgate marine ramble is a 6 to 7 kilometer walk. The paths are well kept and easy to follow but expect to get your feet wet crossing secluded empty beaches and small lagoon areas.There are a number of places you can start from, depending on how long or far you wish to walk. Keep in mind that it is an “out and back” trail so you will be coming back along the same route. If you only want to go one way, organize a car to pick you up at the finish. The trail starts from Margate’s tidal pool located about 1 and half kilometers south from the main beach. The first +-3km of the trail is a beach walk. There are no markers just follow the beach towards Ramsgate and enjoy the secluded scenery.

Even winter has its share of highlights in the winter sunshine with the sardine run – followed as it is by dolphins, other large fish and thousands of sea birds – it is a spectacle to behold. This beautiful part of South Africa is one of the few places where licking an ice-cream cone, whilst strolling the seafront promenade, is a winter-getaway prerequisite.
