Salt Rock at a glance

A mere 30-minute drive from the buzzing Durban metropole lies the charming and pristine coastal town of Salt Rock - the ultimate destination for sea, sand, and sunshine.

The town has grown into a popular holiday destination for many local and international tourists that wants to escape city life and enjoy all the best that the KwaZulu Natal coast has on offer - from sandy beaches to welcoming locals there isn’t much that you won’t find here.

Salt Rock was once home to King Shaka and his maidens would collect salt to use not only in his home but also as trading currency. However, much of the development of Salt Rock began around the Salt Rock hotel that was built by Basil Hulett and his wife Gwen.

Today this popular destination is home to a mixture of old and new developments which includes the more recent development of Sheffield Manor well as the newly built Tiffany's Shopping Mall.

Residents enjoy an outdoor lifestyle with many taking to the water on a daily basis - and with its quintessential KwaZulu Natal coastal weather, who would want to spend perfect sunny days indoors anyway?

It is a great commuter town for those working in either Ballito or Durban and offers residents a less hectic atmosphere while still being conveniently close to all major amenities.

It is no wonder locals call this the true slice of paradise!
