Ballito

Beaches · Spas · Playgrounds
Ballito charms vacationers with its golden sand beaches and warm waters of the Indian Ocean, which serve as a playground for the bottlenose dolphins. However, there's more to do on a Ballito holiday than to watch dolphins frolic in shallow waters close to shore. With a variety of water sports, fishing sports, and walking trails to choose from, outdoorsy types will have plenty on their plate. Packed with hotels, shopping centers, nature parks, and other family-oriented attractions, it is hard to imagine that this thriving holiday destination was part of a sugar cane farm just little more than half a century ago.
