On the south coast of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa and right on the Eastern Cape Province border is the small resort town of Port Edward. The area is regularly visited by those from more affluent South African regions throughout the many tourist seasons. King Shaka International Airport
in Durban services Port Edward with a drive south along the N2 completing the journey.
There is plenty to do for those visiting Port Edward. Being set on the coast, beaches are a given and make for a chill atmosphere, especially if staying in a vacation home on Glenmore Beach. Something of a wonder worth checking out is the Red Desert, said to be the world’s smallest desert. Enjoy unspoiled nature with a guided tour to the Nyandezulu Waterfall, or visit Beaver Creek Coffee Estate to see how a coffee farm works while sampling freshly roasted coffees that are both locally grown and imported. The Christmas and New Year season is a popular time for most visitors, but the sardine run also attracts tourist interested in the natural phenomenon.
Guest houses and river lodges are just a couple of the options available for travelers looking to stay in Port Edward. Several options are sprawled throughout the city from the Umtamvuna Nature Reserve
to the Mpenjati Nature Reserve. Find the most suitable accommodation for you by clicking on our interactive map and exploring Port Edward for hotels and must-see destinations.
