Situated only 10km from Margate and 35km from the Wild Coast Sun casino resort, this popular holiday resort lies on a beautiful stretch of beach. The well known St Michaels beach attracts bathers, surfers and ardent fisherman.
There's plenty to do nearby. Oribi Gorge only 32km away is a spectacular sight not to be missed. Situated along the spectacular forest-cloaked ravine of the Mzimkulwana River, Oribi Gorge is the eastern gorge of two gorges that cuts through the Oribi Flats. The western gorge was formed by the Mzimkulu river.
At the base of the cliffs of both gorges there are rocks over 1000 million years old while the cliffs themselves are formed from sandstone deposited about 365 million years ago. They offer spectacular scenery and walks, as well as a range of thrilling adventure activities.
The Wild Coast Casino and Entertainment Venues is a half-hour's drive for those in search of some man-made thrills, or try the ‘Pistols Saloon' for a quiet drink and a bit of fun.
If the ‘little white pill' is your choice for a thrill, you'll find Margate Country Club only 6km away, and only 18km away, the stunningly picturesque Port Shepstone Country Club, pictured in this article. The first nine holes are luscious coastal forest with a large variety of indigenous trees and mangroves lining the fairways and is considered by many to be the most beautiful section. The second nine holes are more a Links type golf course which is open and wind affected with a number of water hazards attracting abundant Bird Life. Playing this course is an experience not to be missed.
Catch up with the region's wildlife at a number of attractions including the Riverbend crocodile farm (20km); Pure Venom Reptile Park (5km); the beautiful Butterfly sanctuary (12km); the Uvongo Bird Park (3km) or the Lake Eland Nature Reserve (30km).
A little further, but absolutely worth the 130km drive is uShaka Marine World. Featuring the 5th largest aquarium in the world, with underground viewing galleries, extending 500 meters through a series of four superbly designed old ship wrecks, the uShaka aquarium is breathtaking. Each display was designed to represent not only the natural habitat of the sea creatures, but to depict a story that ties in with the Phantom Ship theme. They also have dolphin shows, seal shows, penguin presentations, shark dives, ray feeds and more.
Plus, within the same venue you'll find a Wet ‘n Wild Waterpark experience that all the family will adore. Climb up to the top of the heart-stopping and adrenalin pumping Plunge freefall slide and plummet downward for a gravity- defying wild ride. Try the Kamikaze ride for thrills of gut-wrenching pleasure, or race in sets of fearless five down the five-lane racer. And for the ultimate rush, brace yourself for the Drop Zone, Africa's highest slide.
