The golden sandy beaches on KwaZulu-Natal’s south coast are lined with Holiday Accommodation in Pennington and coastal forests and subtropical vegetation and consistently well maintained, the water is clean.

Diving in South Africa includes among others the Aliwal Shoal, Sodwana Bay and Protea Banks spots and offers a diverse, marine underwater experience. Both spots are located on the south coast of KwaZulu-Natal and are suitable for beginners and advanced.
Aliwal Shoal is located off the coast of Umkomaa and is a 1.5 km long and 1 km wide sand dune, which goes down 37m and contains various fossils, corals and sponges. A hidden obstacle for passing ships. In 1884, the British steamer Nebo suffered shipwreck and a century later the Norwegian tanker Produce. The two wrecks are about 30 m below the sea surface and attract a variety of reef fish, sea bass and salmon.
Undoubtedly the stars of the Awiwal Shoal are the ripped shark teeth. The sharks migrate along the coast between July and November and offer shark divers unique experiences. The Raggies Cave is another magnet for sharks and can be explored without any worries.
Protea Bank is located south of Scottburgh and is equally known for its shark population. Tiger sharks, hammerhead sharks, bull sharks and reef sharks are in colourful company of rays including stingrays and mantas.
Do not miss the Sardine Run – an annual phenomenon where millions of sardines wander the coast and are accompanied by sharks and dolphins. Exciting dives in Protea Banks and Aliwal Shoal with millions of sardines and their enemies are possible in June and July.
