SCOTTBURGH

KWAZULU-NATAL SOUTH COAST

 

LOCAL ACTIVITIES:

Golf:

Scottburgh is home to an 18 hole golf course set in sub-tropical climate and runs along the coastal shore. It is comparatively small with a 5323 metre total length, and boasts five Par 3's, two Par 5's and eleven Par 4's. The Par 4 on the third hole is the most talked about on the course with its narrow fairway, out of bounds on the right and a coastal forest on the left to contend with. Like many coastal courses, Scottburgh Golf Course can be quite tricky in the wind offering a good challenge to any avid golfer.

Fishing:

Scottburgh South Beach and Green Point offer fantastic rock angling with many a Shad (Elf), Muscle Cracker, Black Tail, and Grunter being caught. Deep sea fishing for game fish like Marlin, Baracouta, Garrick and Yellowtail.

Scuba Diving:

Aliwal Shoal, rated as one of the top ten dive sites in the world, offers you a huge diversity of tropical sea life. The shoal is probably most notarized for the opportunity to dive with the Ragged Toothed Shark, commonly seen at the dive sites "Cathedral" (Depth: 27m) and "Raggies Cave" (Depth 17m) often up to 40 sharks in a single outing.
"Inside Edge" (Depth: 22m) offers a variety of tropical sea life including octopus, cuttlefish, firefish, eels and the odd shark or ray, whilst "Outside Edge" (Depth: 27m) offers viewing of more game fish and the odd Hammerhead or Tiger Shark.
Other dive sites include "Manta Point" (Depth: 15 - 22m) for spectacular seasonal viewing of Manta Rays and "Eelskins" (Depth: 18m) showcasing fabulous fossilized rock formations.
For the advanced diver, "MV Proince" (Depth: 32m) and "Nebo" (Depth: 27m) are two spectacular ship wreck dives with hoards of history to boot.
