I Love Ballito Because …
Hi, I’m Jaimé Ernst from Ballito in KwaZulu Natal.
Ballito IS BEST KNOWN FOR its endless summers, golden beaches, breathtaking sunrises and regular sightings of the bottlenose dolphins that use our coastline as their playground.
Fabulous golf courses, mountain biking trails, quad biking adventures make sure that there is something to keep everyone busy.
GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT the Mr Price Pro Surfing Competition that takes place yearly on our beaches.
THE BEST family PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT Willard Beach while you enjoy frolicking in the waves or building sandcastles on the beach.
OTHER HAPPY SNAPS can be taken while having fun on the zip line or high above the skies as you enjoy a microlight flight and take in all that Ballito has to offer from the air.
WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO have sundowners and pizza on the beach.
WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO visit one of the many wonderful spa’s to relax and be pampered.
I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS April, BECAUSE the weather is just perfect.
MY FAVOURITE BREAKFAST SPOT IS Zara’s at Lifestyle.
FOR LUNCH, I SUGGEST Sage Café.
MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS Mozambik, TRY THE calamari and their stuffed olives … they are out of this world.
BEST LATE NIGHT SNACK FROM The Hops.
MY FAVOURITE Wi-Fi hot SPOT IS BBM Cafe.
FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN TRY Shakers.
IF YOU WANT TO MEET LOCALS, GO TO Karibu Pub.
Ballito’s BEST KEPT SECRET IS Rainfarm for divine game drives.
MY FAVOURITE THING TO DO WITH FRIENDS IS have a pedicure followed by cocktails at Canelands Beach Club.
FOR SOME LIVE MUSIC, I LIKE TO GO TO the Wine and Jazz Festival hosted monthly by Hotel iZulu.
TO RELAX AND RESTORE MY SOUL, I LIKE TO go to The Green Room.
IF YOU’RE FEELING ADVENTUROUS, TRY one of the mountain biking trails at Holla Trails.
MY FAVOURITE WALK IS on the promenade and my favourite drive is along the M4 leading into Ballito so that I can enjoy the beautiful views of the sea.
MY FAVOURITE clothing SHOP IS White Summer.
MY FAVOURITE dolphin WATCHING SPOT IS Gianni’s Restaurant.
IF YOU’RE HERE IN July, JOIN IN THE FUN AT the Mr Price Pro or the Prawn and Jazz Festival.
MY FAVOURITE MUSEUM IS Luthuli Museum. CHECK OUT THE history of KwaZulu Natal.
TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN? A FUN OUTING IS definitely Sage Cafe. Mom and Dad can relax and have a coffee and a bite to eat while the children explore the various activities available to keep them entertained.
BEST CHEAP AND CHEERFUL OUTING IS Karibu.
WHEN MONEY’S NO OBJECT, I LIKE TO have lunch at The Fairmont Hotel.
WHEN I WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, I donate to KwaMama or the Shakas Head Feeding Scheme.
Other: Ballito is the hottest place to work, live and play!
