Amanzimtoti Holidays - South Coast, KwaZulu Natal
Click here for Amanzimtoti Holiday Accommodation

Long ago, the great Zulu King Shaka stopped to rest in the South Coast town now known as Amanzimtoti, or 'Sweetwaters' in Zulu.  He was brought water, and once he'd sipped he said, “Kanti Amanz'amtoti", meaning 'the water is sweet'.
 
Amanzimtoti lies on the South Coast of KwaZulu Natal, also known as 'The Sapphire Coast', because of its superb white sandy beaches bordering the warm South Coast Indian Ocean. Alive with colourful fish and magnificent offshore coral reefs, Toti is ideal for snorkelling and diving adventures, and for the South Coast diver, the nearby Aliwal Shoal (20 minutes from Amanzimtoti), with its rich abundance of marine and plant life makes for an excellent South Coast diving spot. Other than the fish and sea life, there are also a number of shipwrecks waiting to be explored, providing visitors with a truly unforgettable experience.

With its wealth of shore, rock and deep sea fishing, Toti is also renowned as an anglers paradise, especially during the annual South Coast sardine run, when towns like Amanzimtoti come to life with an energetic buzz of fishermen and locals as the tiny silver fish beach. Considered to be the greatest shoal on earth, these billions of fish bring with them numerous larger game fish, dolphins, sharks, seals, whales and a variety of birdlife seeking an easy meal, making Amanzimtoti 's annual ocean extravaganza undoubtedly one of the most spectacular South Coast marine events.

If you're an avid sun-worshipper, fisherman, surfer, scuba diver ... or anyone who loves glorious beaches, numerous places of interest, a wide choice of shopping facilities and activities, gourmet restaurants, entertainment and exciting nightlife, then the sub-tropical paradise of Toti on the Natal South Coast is definitely the place for your next family vacation.
