Ramsgate is located on the mouth of a river known by the Zulu name Bilanhlolo (“the marvellous boiler”) for the bubbles caused by strong currents making it look like the water is boiling.
In 1922, the only person living there was a romantic character called Paul Buck, a painter and violin maker who called the place Blue Lagoon.
At Ramsgate’s Blue Flag Beach and the Noel Quarry tidal pool you can enjoy the ocean, or hire a canoe or paddle boat on the lagoon.
The Ramsgate Marine Ramble is an easy coastal and beach walk with resting benches at various points along the way, which invite you to linger and enjoy the views of the sea, beaches and coves.
There are many activities in the area such as mountain biking, canoeing, scuba diving, ski-boat fishing, whale watching, vulture viewing, reptile farms, a coffee farm, banana tours, Go-Carting and Waterworld.
The nickname for the KZN Lower south coast of, “Golf Coast,” comes from the many top-class golf courses in the area.
