Five reasons why you can’t beat winter down the South Coast!

Winter, what winter? Whilst the rest of the nation are staying indoors and wrapping up to get through colder weather, our residents are out and about, living the holiday. Here’s why we can’t get enough of the “chilly” season down the South Coast and at Renishaw Hills…

  1. More days of sunshine and warmer temperatures. The South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal experiences a far milder winter climate than the rest of the country, with temperatures that are generally pleasant and comfortable. This means that  the time (and weather) is always right for living the holiday and enjoying a host of activities.
  1. It’s less crowded… Unlike the North Coast of KZN, on the South Coast tends to be less crowded. This means you can enjoy the beauty of our location without having to deal with large crowds of locals and tourists. This results in ample space to relax and unwind.
  1. Whale watching excitement is at an all-time high. Winter is the ideal time for whale watching along the South Coast. Southern right whales migrate to the coastal waters of KwaZulu-Natal during this time, and you may also spot humpback whales, too. Getting to see these incredible creatures up close is truly a magical experience and one we consider ourselves lucky to enjoy every winter.
  1. Water activities galore awaits! It may be winter but on our side of the world, this means its’s the perfect time to make a splash. The South Coast is renowned for its fantastic surfing conditions, and winter brings excellent waves for surf enthusiasts. Other water-based activities like snorkelling, scuba diving, shark cage diving and even fishing are thoroughly enjoyed during winter as well.
  1. It’s bursting with natural beauty. Simply put, our location is stunning. The natural beauty on offer includes pristine beaches, lush vegetation, and breathtaking coastal landscapes. During winter, the vegetation is lush and green, creating a picturesque backdrop that provides ample opportunities for any adventure imaginable. For our residents this includes nature walks and bike rides on our neighbouring trails as well as hobbies like gardening and nature photography.
