Ballito is about 40 kilometres north of Durban. Dolphins are common on this stretch of the North Coast shoreline, hence the nickname Dolphin Coast.
Ballito has grown exponentially in recent times and has fantastic family adventure attractions such as the crocodile farm and microlight flights and tours.
It is a holiday destination with hotels and self-catering accommodation, swimming (Willard) and surfing beaches (Boulder). A promenade about 2.5 kilometres long along the beach front allows for walking and jogging.
In recent years, there has been a population boom in Ballito. Various secure or gated estates, the largest being Zimbali Coastal Resort & Estate , have been built in and around the town on land that was previously used as sugar cane farms. Many new hotels and resorts have opened, drawing even more tourists into this picturesque part of the KwaZulu-Natal coast.
