The Dolphin Coast
is located in the Durban Coast area of the Natal region in South Africa.

This section of coast runs for 100km northeast from the city of Durban and is named after the bottle-nose dolphins that inhabit the area year round.

The southern part of this stretch, closer to the city, is a busy area which gets jam-packed with domestic holidaymakers during the season.

Further north the beaches become rather wilder and are largely backed by commercial sugar plantations, with some moderately interesting little nature reserves in between.

Most international visitors tend to skip this area and look further north to the Elephant Coast for longer beach stays.

We tend to most commonly include the lodges in this area for people wanting an overnight when connecting in or out of Durban Airport, for people with business in the city who would rather commute in and out, or for people who are especially looking for the type of golfing resorts for which the area is well known.

There are some more upmarket accommodation options up here ...

La Luxe ... is a high quality upmarket guest-house in a suburban setting.

Teremok Marine ... is another high quality guest-house with glancing views of the ocean.

The Oyster Box ... is a relatively upmarket small hotel in the coastal settlement of Umhlanga Rocks.
