Just 5 kilometres to the North of Ballito and set above the ocean on the beautiful Dolphin Coast, is Shaka's Rock, a small residential area with a wide range of accommodation to choose from. It is also home to a beautiful stretch of sandy beach as well as a fine tidal pool bordered by picturesque, rocky cliffs. The beach at Shaka's Rock is a favourite ski-boat launch site, and beach-goers are often treated to the spectacular launching and beaching of the daredevil wave riders returning from a deep sea fishing trip. With a little luck you might even be able to buy some fresh fish, straight from the sea.

Shaka's Rock offers spectacular views of the shoreline and beyond. The resort is ideal for a family holiday, and provides all that is needed for seaside fun with the beach only 500m away. Here you can hunt for shells, frolic in the sea or safe tidal pools or fish from the famous Rock. You may even spot one of the many schools of dolphins that play in the ocean here. All major facilities are available at Ballito, just down the coast from Shaka's Rock, about 5 minutes' drive away.
