For a taste of the seaside provincial life, drive just ten kilometres from Port Shepstone and you will discover Southport’s offering of small-worldly charm and character. The small village lies on the picture-perfect KwaZulu-Natal South Coast and is just a stone’s throw away from noteworthy attractions such as the Banana Express, Pure Venom Reptile Park and the Port Shepstone Lighthouse. With a choice of pet-friendly guesthouses and cosy bed and breakfasts to choose from, this idyllic little town is perfect for the weary city-goer looking for a little time out. With beautiful views ands blue flag beaches just outside your doorstep you can experience the coast from whatever angle you decide. Embark on an ocean safari for impressive dolphin and whale sightings or venture inland for great hiking, bird watching and abseiling opportunities. Being one of the many scattered seaside village on the Hibiscus coast, Southport is imagined around a secluded stretch of beach between Sunwich Port and Sea Park, neighbouring the more bustling Port Shepstone. The village was once used as a railway stopover and the old station can still be seen there today. A breath of fresh air from Durban’s urban clamour, Southport, like its neighbours, is free of commercialization and industrial disturbance. For shopping, dining and entertainment a comfortable 8 kilometre drive is all that is necessary. Popular resorts such as Shelly Beach, Margate are also a close distance way so that the well-informed visitor can choose when and where to venture from the idyllic surrounds of pastoral Southport. The immediate 50km hosts at least 10 golf courses as well as various hiking trails, nature reserves and snorkelling sites. The Aliwal Shoal just 4 kilometres off-shore is particularly good for scuba-diving.
