A trip to KwaZulu Natal would be incomplete without spending some time in Sodwana Bay and experiencing our amazing Coral Reefs.
The unspoiled Sodwana Bay coastline and endless sandy beaches gently slope into the clear warm blue waters of the Indian Ocean where a pristine tropical underwater paradise awaits you for a diving experience of a lifetime.
Sodwana Bay is a bay between St. Lucia and Lake Sibhayi. It is in the Sodwana Bay National Park, and the Maputaland Marine Reserve, and is a popular recreational diving destination. Classified as one of the top dive sites in the world, the park is visited by some 35 000 scuba divers per year.
Sodwana is the only recreational scuba diving area along the iSimangaliso coastline. Whale watching targeting migratory or resident cetaceans is a local tourist industry.
Bottlenose dolphins live in the vicinity and sometimes swim with whale sharks. Humpback whales migrate through the bay during winter to spring seasons while southern right whales and other species are less common. Orcas may also visit the bay waters.
