About Driftsands Holiday Flats

Driftsands Sea View Flats.
Situated in Uvongo, the bustling holiday town,1.5 hours South of Durban, that has much to offer the visitor. Driftsands is the ideal base from which to explore the KwaZulu-Natal Lower South Coast, with its sub-tropical forests, blue lagoons, golden beaches, rocky coves, and the warm Indian Ocean. The sunny weather makes KwaZulu-Natal's South Coast a popular year-round holiday resort for both local and international visitors.

The Uvongo swimming beach, 150 m from the sea side gate, is beautiful and the waterfall is a truly wonderful sight. There are also canoes and paddle boats on the lagoon. The waves crashing into the tidal pool 50 m from Driftsands are a constant reminder that you are on the coast where you can swim in the surf or just laze on the beach working on your suntan.

Every winter, there is the phenomenon of the sardine run - millions of sardines migrate up the coast, accompanied by dolphins and other large fish and thousands of sea birds which feed on them. People come from far and wide to scoop up buckets of this natural harvest.

For those looking for an active holiday,
• 10 golf courses within an hour drive, ranging from the immaculate Wild Coast to the challenging 9 hole Port Edward Golf Course, all at affordable prices.
