Everything in Amanzimtoti.
Its a very convenient holiday destination - close to major highways and shopping malls as well as the beach.
Amanzimtoti is located on the south coast of Durban, Kwazulu-Natal and is a very popular holiday destination for the whole family. According to legend Amanzimtoti got its name from the Zulu King Shaka while he was leading his army down the river to attack the Pondos in 1828. He stopped at the river to have a drink water and proclaimed that the water was sweet; and so the river became known as Amanzimtoti which means Sweet Water.
Amanzimtoti was once known as a town to pass through to get somewhere else, but people became fascinated with the town and would stop and stay because of its peacefulness and beauty. It is now a favourite place for many to escape from the hustle and bustle of life.
Amanzimtoti may be a little town, but boy is there plenty to do. Being a beach town, the number one fave activity is fun in the sun; but it's not all there is on offer!
Amanzimtoti beaches are very popular whilst on vacation. There are many restaurants and pubs to grab a bite at, and plenty of beach activities for the kids during the peak season. There are also numerous watersports; with snorkling and bodyboarding being favourites. The wide stretches of beach are also perfect to just relax on - whether you're sunbathing, reading or enjoying a picnic. Some of the beaches to visit include Main beach, Baggies Beach and Pipeline Beach.
For a cooler activity, why not try your hand at ice skating. The Galleria Ice Rink, located in the Galleria Mall, offers skate rental for those without their own blades, and it's a fun activity for the whole family to enjoy.
Situated on Amanzimtoti main beach is the adrenaline fuelled Splash Water World. This fun filled water park is suitable for the whole family and caters for the more adventurous and kids alike.

For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
