Scottburgh

Scottburgh is a coastal resort town situated on the mouth of the Mpambanyoni River , 58 km south of Durban on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast in South Africa. Neighbouring towns include Pennington, Renishaw, Freeland Park, Umkomaas, Sezela, Bazley, Amahlongwa, Clansthal, Park Rynie and Dududu.HistoryNamed after Natal Colony Governor John Scott and in 1860 it became the first township to be laid out south of Durban, but was initially known as Devonport. Scottburgh then became a very promising port as well as a new attractive location for sugar farms and sugar mills. In about 1850 the town started to attract immigrants especially from the United Kingdom, known as the Byrne Settlers. They came to take advantage of the good harbours, both locally and at Durban, and to export their sugar both internally and externally. Scottburgh became a municipality in 1964.BeachesScottburgh Main beach along with Pennington and Park Rynie have been awarded blue flag status as of the 2014/15 summer season.
