Caribbean Estates has direct access to a beautiful, unspoiled beach. But please note that there are NO shark nets in place. There are NO lifesavers on duty on this beach, and due care should be taken with regard to currents and sidewashes. If you see anyone in danger, please alert the security guards on (039) 311 2045.
The beach is very isolated, and we suggest that you do not take valuables with you, and try not to leave towels, bags, etc. unattended. It is also not advisable to sit in isolated spots alone.
Across the river, to the south, you can see the remnants of the Petrified Forest on the Wild Coast Sun beach at low tide - this is a 2 hour walk to see the fossilised trees, it is an organised event which normally leaves everyday at 9:00am. Contact The Wild Coast Sun on (039) 305 9111 for details.
To the north is Silver Beach (Port Edward), T.O Strand, Drakes Bay, Peter Pan Bay and Kidds Beach (Leisure Bay), Glenmore, Palm Beach, Trafalgar, Southbroom - and so on up to Durban! All are worth visiting, and all have a different appeal. Palm Beach and Trafalgar are known for their many different types of shells (depending on the tides, of course). Peter Pan Bay is a small, sheltered beach. Kidds Beach has some lovely rock pools. Southbroom has a lagoon for windsurfing. Port Edward's Silver Beach is great for kids, as there is the Supa Chube (water slide), the Oasis ice-cream shop, good surfing and general all-round entertainment.
