Access to the private estate is via the R61 just of the National Road (N2) from Durban or Johannesburg. The closest international airport is King Shaka Airport, in Durban, 210 kilometres to the North. There is a landing strip at the Wild Coast Sun, less than five kilometres away.
As a private residential Estate, Caribbean Estates offers both Sectional Title and Freehold Villas for occupation by owners and guests utilising either the Rental Service operated by the Estate or the timeshare component.
On the Estate there are 3 swimming pools, a playground area (which consists of a jungle gym, swings, a see-saw and a trampoline), tennis courts and there are board games available.
The estate is surrounded by, and has direct access to, the Umtamvuna Nature/Beach Reserve. It also has direct access to the Umtamvuna River where it has its own boat launching site, jetti on the river for boating and water sports and braai facilities in the boma (enclosure) down by the beach.
On the Estate there are two floodlit, all weather courts. Tennis rackets and balls are available at the Gate Office, for which a refundable deposit is required.
* Board games
Enquiries regarding board games can be made at reception.
The Umtamvuna River is navigable by motor boat for about four kilometres, but canoes can be taken much further inland over the small rocky rapids. It is possible in this way to come across small sandy beaches and deep pools for swimming. Look out here for baboon, otter, leguaan and the mighty fish eagle with its haunting cry.
The Estate terrain is relatively level and slopes to the beach and river. A conservation area lies between the development and the water on both sides and forms a beautiful natural boundary to the Estate. The reserve abounds with small game such as duiker, bushbuck and monkeys and there are numerous species of tropical birds.
Scenic walkways have been constructed through this green belt, with wooden viewing platforms at strategic points.
The pathways and the decks are gently illuminated after dusk to allow for evening strolls to enjoy the moonlit water and woodland.
From the river mouth to both north and south stretch kilometres of unspoilt beaches with the nearest public access two kilometres away in either direction. This ensures that the almost one kilometre beach reached directly from the property remains virtually exclusive to Caribbean residents. It is as common to see spoor of otter, buck and waterbirds as it is to see human footprints. Access to the beach from the resort is via the Sunrise Beach Trail, the Wagon Trail and the river from River Ramble and Tassleberry Lane.
Direct access to the river is from Sandpiper pier and boats can be launched from the Wagon Trail using the Estate 4x4 vehicle.
