This area is called the Dolphin Coast. In this sub-tropical paradise lies the magnificent Nature Conservancy of Zinkwazi - a unique coastal eco-experience of endless golden beaches and tropical palms, lush indigenous forests with spectacular bird life, and 7 kilometers of untouched lagoon. The indigenous Zulu people called it Zinkwazi, the home of Fish Eagles, and their haunting cry is still part of the magic. Zinkwazi Beach, edged by forested coastal dunes, spills into into an enthralling collection of tidal rock pools of life; from coral and kelp to urchins and a myriad of multi-coloured fish. Golden sands, only occasionally interspersed by black , sedimentary rocks, stretch endlessly to the North and South.
The sea off the swimming beach is equipped with shark nets and life savers are on duty during busy seasons, making swimming completely safe. Alternatively you can also float lazily in the calm waters of the lagoon, which is the preferred area of the smaller children. It is an ideal place for the whole family. The beach is habitually deserted and, apart from a few fishermen, there is little to disturb the serenity as the sea spray touches the unique stands of subtropical vegetation that nestle between the vast sugar estates and the blue of the sea.
