Where you’ll be

KwaDukuza, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Blythedale is a lovely seaside village situated between the Nonoti and Umvoti rivers. There are locals as well as holiday homes. There is a wonderful wedding venue called Palm Dunes where weddings are held on the beach. There is a central beach area and there are lifegaurds on weekends only. You can walk for miles along the beach and if you walk south its about 4 kms to the river mouth You will often spot dolphins from the deck and the odd whale. Never swim alone in the sea in front of the cottage as there is a strong backwash. At low tide there are lovely rockpools to play in. My sons are strong swimmers and often surf in front of the cottage when there is not such a strong riptide. I would recommend that if you are not that good a swimmer you stick to swimming in front of the lifegaurds who are on duty on the weekends. the swimming beach is about 100 metres to the left of the cottage. There is Grumpys Beach BAr open on weekends only. Its 5 minutes drive from the cottage and is situated on the edge of the forest and beach in Blythedale Its A beach bar where you can also get the most amazing prawn curry and other food and where are are almost on the beach. There is a play area there for kids as well.
There is also the Ballito Cable and Ski Park about 20 minutes away in Ballito which is fun for the whole family. Also Ballito dolphin viewing and the Flag Farm Animal Farm in SAlt rock. There are so many things to do in the area.
There is microlighting, golf courses, Litchi Orchard, shopping malls all within a 15-20 minute radius of the cottage.
