Rocktail Beach Camp lies in the lush, tropical shade of the Maputaland Coastal Forest of northern KwaZulu Natal. The Maputaland Marine Reserve lies just offshore from the camp. Rocktail Beach Camp offers world-class diving and snorkelling; remote, unspoilt beaches and other beach adventures. Perfect for adventurous family holidays and those who want to get off the beaten track.
Rocktail Beach Camp is set back in and shaded by the sanctuary of the lush coastal forest that covers the ancient dunes that edge the north-east coast of South Africa. The camp consists of 12 rooms (including 3 family units), most of which have a view of the ocean. All have en suite bathrooms, open-feel indoor shower and overhead fans. The camp also has a central dining room, bar and lounge with large wrap around veranda. A television set and iPod are available in the camp’s main area for guests’ enjoyment, as well as a large pool.
Diving at Rocktail Beach Camp
The Maputaland Marine Reserve provides a sanctuary for marine life with extraordinary diving and snorkelling encounters with huge shoals of fish, dolphins and whales. The camp offers world-class diving and snorkelling, remote, unspoilt beaches and other beach adventures and has its own Rocktail Dive Centre.
From a scuba diving perspective Rocktail Beach Camp is unique. Not only is the diving conducted within a Reserve and World Heritage Site along unspoiled reefs, but also divers have the luxury of knowing that they alone have access to these sites and are the only underwater visitors along this stretch of the coastline.
Please Note: Rocktail Beach Camp (despite its somewhat misleading name) is not actually right by the beach, but rather it lies a 10 minute walk inland. You can choose to walk down to the beach or take the camp’s complimentary transfer.
