Salt Rock is a small town just north of Ballito and Shaka’s Rock. It is a favorite holiday destination for many local South Africans. It is about 40 minutes north of Durban.
Salt Rock owes much of its history to Basil Hulett and his wife Gwen who started not only the Salt Rock Hotel but went on to develop the town of Salt Rock as found today. Nightlife in the small town is limited with a handful of pubs and restaurants offering a variety of food and drinks.
There are plenty of fishing spots along the coast from Salt Rock, through Shaka’s Rock to Ballito and Salmon Bay. For snorkeling and diving there are reefs offshore. The main beach has lifeguards on duty, is shark protected and a has surfing site. Close to the main beach is a large tidal pool, which was originally built for guests staying at the hotel.
