Activities in Ballito
With miles of beautiful beaches at hand, sure, there’s plenty of great surf and sunbathing spots to choose from… but there’s more to Ballito than surf and sand!
Being so close to the famous Willards Beach, surfing is a major attraction and at Monkey Bay Backpackers we rent out surfboards, enquire at reception. Surfing lessons can also be arranged! Experience this awesome activity.
For a start, there’s a host of great cafes, restaurants, bars and shopping centres. There’s the awesome Crocodile Creek, giving you a chance to get up close and personal with some Crocodiles. How about a Microlight flight over Ballito’s sugar cane fields and golden beaches – truly an amazing experience with a chance of seeing it all with a bird’s eye view… and you never know, you may even spot a Turtle, Whale or Dolphins swimming in the clear azure ocean.
For some culture, there are a fabulous museum 10 minutes away that’s well worth a visit! Ballito is also very well placed for visiting neighbouring hot spots, like Durban and Umhlanga with both only being 30 and 20 minutes away, by car, respectively. Of course, heading north or inland, not far away you’ve got the beautiful Midlands Meandor and Drakensberg Mountains, as well as Big 5 National Parks, where you’ll find some of Africa’s most majestic animals.
There’s too much to mention here, so get down to MONKEY BAY BACKPACKERS, chat with the owner and get solid, sound, tailor-made advice and tips.
