More info about Salt Rock
Looking for a peaceful seaside holiday? Salt Rock in the KwaZulu-Natal Province should be your destination of choice. This charming village on the Dolphin Coast is where you will find locals from inner cities holidaying during the summer vacations. No more than a 40-minute drive from the big city lights of Durban, Salt Rock is far enough away for that feeling of remoteness necessary to stay chilled.
In the early 1800s, Zulu king Shaka would send young females down to the beach to collect salt off the rocks and it’s likely that the village is named after this practice.
The beach at Salt Rock is regarded as one of the best along this section of the coastline. Informal traders sell their unique beach hats and beachwear at the entrance and quirky restaurants offer snack foods to be enjoyed over a magnificent sea view.
Dolphins frequent the bay and watching them adds to the tranquillity one experiences... Show more
