Sodwana Bay diving is unique in the world. Abundant corals, well-balanced fish-life and breathtaking natural beauty make Sodwana Bay reefs some of the most spectacular and fascinating in the world. Diving is on reefs where the reef population balance is complete with huge shoals of barracuda, eagle rays and an abundance of reef fish. In summer the pregnant female ragged tooth sharks lie in the warm waters, fasting while they gestate.
Laze on the extensive swimming beaches, or drift into the warm tropical waters to snorkel off Jesser Point and enjoy a beach breakfast at the Beach Cafe, then dine at night at Mi Casa on their mouth-watering fillet steak.
Try a quad bike trail through the pine plantations, try surf fishing, book a kite surfing lesson. You can dive the reefs in the morning, book a Game Viewing Safari to Tembe Elephant Park in the afternoon and take a Turtle Tour to watch turtles laying their eggs at night
Big Game and Deep Sea fishing made Sodwana Bay famous, and many Prestigious International competitions are held there. Fisherman can book day trips or bring their own boats.
View the bay from a microlite aircraft, or try body surfing or boogie boarding.
Buy a sarong or handwoven beach- bag from the local market, or take a set of handwoven table mats home as a memento. Sodwana Bay has it all. You just have to be there.
