Situated approximately 25km outside of the Durban city centre, Amanzimtoti is a town that has grown from very humble beginnings into a vibrant residential and commercial node along the scenic South Coast.

Amanzimtoti - which means ‘Sweet Waters’ - got its name, according to local folklore, from King Shaka, who drank from the nearby river and referred to it as ‘sweet waters.’ Initially the town was established around the railway line which runs down the South Coast, as demand grew property demand expanded as well and today there is demand from not only holidaymakers but also from those seeking to make it their primary residency.

The thriving tourist industry forms a large part of the local economy but there is a lot to offer for permanent residents of Toti as well.

The property market

The greater Amanzimtoti area stretches from Athlone Park to Illovo Beach and includes areas such as Doonside, Doonheights, Kingsburgh, Winklespruit, Warner Beach and St. Winfreds.

Educational Institutes

The warm weather and the superb beaches makes it almost impossible not to be an outdoor person!

Although the site is popular with divers year-round it is especially sought after between August and November, when the Grey nurse sharks (known locally as Ragged Tooth sharks or raggies) congregate here to mate.

For those who prefers to keep their ‘land-legs’ there is an abundance of golf courses along the South Coast and you will be hard-pressed to find a golf course with a better view than the Amanzimtoti Golf Course’s 18th hole which is literally situated on the beach.

      The thing about the property ladder is that at some point in our lives we all have reason to want to climb a rung or two higher. Sometimes, it’s because we’ve outgrown our previous dream home, or because we want to be in a better neighbourhood that’s closer to work or to schools. Sometimes it’s because our circumstances have changed, and we’re taking care of elderly parents or relatives. Sometimes, it’s just because we want a property that reflects the financial status our hard work has won.
