I love this beach it's not busy it's quiet, You can take your family my nephew turned 1 and he loved it there. It's a very relaxing beach. definitely going back there for a family vacation. It's close to Banana Mac and Shelly Beach Center/Mall for a night out.

The drive to the South Coast is wonderful, doing an ocean drive is one of the things someone who comes from a landlocked country dreams of. I was amazed by the drive to Trafalgar, but the place blew my mind, excellent accommodation facilities, fine restaurants. This is the place to go if you want some privacy and a good retreat

Wonderful sand, plenty of space to park, with police on site, helpful life guards, ablution blocks, out door pool with great views of the sea. Fantastic waves and when the wind is right great for surfing.

As the days get warm fairly quickly the ideal time for walking on the beach is either early in the mornings or late afternoon. the beaches are peaceful and you can walk at leisure for long periods of time

In August we went camping at Port o'Call in Trafalgar. If you want a beautiful beach to loose yourself on, this is the place to go. In the off season you will mostly have the beach to yourself.

Beautiful silken sand beach and easy and safe swimming. Walk south to the Mpepnjati lagoon and look out for the odd fossil in the rocks (ask a local where) This is a marine reserve area so leave just foot prints. This part of the beach is very private.

A quiet, Blue Flag beach. Great for surfing, fishing and swimming. Long white sands and interesting walks at low tide to see the fossil beds.

We had direct access from Days At Sea and we did a long morning walk on the wonderful sandy beach. We were mostly all alone and felt very safe. Beautiful birds in the forest and whales and dolphins are common guests.
