Mtwalume is a small seaside village about 87 km south of Durban. It is predominantly a holiday and fishing village. This tranquil quiet town is the perfect holiday getaway.
The name “Mtwalume” is derived from isiZulu, and refers to the tall upright trees growing on the river bank. The Mtwalume River winds for 85 km and ends in a waterfall near Highflats. The beach itself has been recently upgraded and boasts a tidal pool and bathing area.
Mtwalume is largely made up of rural, but modern villages. The majority of the Mtwalume land area falls under the traditional chieftaincy of iNkosi Bhekizizwe Luthuli whose residency is near Turton. Mtwalume is bordered on the north by Efafa – another coastal town – and on the south by Hibberdene.
