Accommodation in Palm Beach on the KZN South Coast
The little village of Palm Beach, named after the Ilala Palm (hyphaene critina), a species indigenous to sub-tropical Southern Africa and used by rural communities for centuries – the leaves for woven rooftops, baskets and mats and the sap for liquor – lies on the extreme southern coast of KwaZulu Natal, about 12 kilometres north of Port Edward.
Palm Beach not only has one of the most beautiful beaches on the coast with its own natural tidal pool and estuary that offers some wonderful swimming and windsurfing opportunities and attracts local fishermen, but it also borders the Mpenjati Nature reserve, which means an incredible diversity of bird life is attracted to the area and little development has been allowed to spoil the neighbourhood.
