One of the myriad, pretty seaside villages on this stretch of the Hibiscus coastline, Southport is essentially a beautiful, secluded beach, rich in shady areas and ideal for family holidays.
Sandwiched between Sunwich Port and Sea Park, Southport and its neighbours tend to regard themselves as extensions of Port Shepstone, so there is rarely anything to disturb a holiday idyll along this lovely stretch of coastline, and little commercialisation.
Southport is only 8 kilometres of travel to reach the variety of shops, restaurants and other entertainment in Port Shepstone, or the ‘buzz’ of resorts such as Shelly Beach, St Michaels, Uvongo and Margate, so one can understand why Southport is popular amongst those who seek the buzz only when and if they choose to do so.
Southport blue flag beach has a guarded car park, braai facilities on the grass under the fascinating milkwood trees, beautiful golden sand with enough rocks to make the scenery interesting, tidal kiddies pool, showers and ablutions at the life guard station. It is also home to the Captain’s Anchor pub and grill for your lunches and cool drinks.
