Margate


Margate is a very popular resort town that has been a major draw card to the South Coast for many decades. It boasts great beaches, an Olympic size swimming pool, many restaurants and pubs and plenty of night life.

The main beach has a African craft market. The vendors will love to show you their range of carvings,curios and other interesting items. In case you need more information on what to do and where to go, the main beach has an information kiosk.

Activities include the annual Bike Fest in April each year and attracts over 20000 motorbikes. The Bike Fest culminates with a mass ride along marine drive from Shelly Beach to Port Shepstone and then onto Margate. The Margate Mardi- Gras in the centre of Margate is held on Wednesday nights during peak season and features live music, dancing and many interesting stalls. Come join in the fun.

Besides the 8 other 18-hole golf courses within an easy drive on the South Coast, Margate’s own Country Club welcomes visitors.

The neighbouring towns offer many more attractions. Shelly Beach is the ski boat launch site for fun rides which take you past the Margate beaches.  So you can see the town from the sea. It also has diving trips to world famous Protea Banks, shark cage diving and fishing charters.  Horse riding on the beach is available at nearby Trafalgar Beach as well as at the South Coast Sun.

Within 50km of Margate is Oribi Gorge which offers the longest zip-line in Africa, white water rafting, mountain biking, hiking and a nature reserve.  The Wild Coast Sun is also less than 50km away.  This hotel complex offers jet skiing, boat cruises, a water park for the kids and a casino for the adults, all available to day visitors.
