So many pictures. So much beauty. Let’s travel the trails of the fabulous South Africa, a country not without it’s scars. Here people cling to hertitage and homelands with a devoted passion. Why? Because it’s absolutely worth it! there are so many stories behind the camera lens.
B for “Ballito Bay”
One of the babes of beach venues, only 68 years old; first advertised in 1954 by agents, when only a caravan park and camping areas existed along this beautiful coastline.
“Buy, Build and Play at Ballito Bay”- The Caribbean of the North Coast.
Now an air shot shows what looks like, scattering upon scatterings of building blocks tossed along the coastal hilltops, after prospectors flocked to make it a holiday resort with a difference. A two and a half km. promenade was built- great for walkers and joggers.
This suburban paradise sometimes referred to as the Pearl of the North Coast, is approximately 40 kms from Durban, Kwazulu- Natal.
Bottle Nose Dolphins favour this stretch of the coastline, because of its relatively clear and shallow water allowing them to swim close to shore.
Recently the then well known, “Gunston 500”, now ASP Prime Mr Price Pro, surfing competition is held in Ballito Bay.
Ballito Bay has hotels, guest houses and more, in beautiful seaside settings for all who visit the North Coast of Natal. And Backpackers are welcome at Monkey Bay!
More travel – South Africa next week, as part of Jenny’s Alphabe Thursday.
