Ballito at a glance
Ballito, the heart of the North Coast just 30 minutes north of Durban, lies nestled between rippling fields of sugar cane, KwaZulu Natal’s famous Green Gold, and is flanked to the east by golden beaches and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Ballito is the Pearl of the North Coast.
The town’s origins date back to 1953, when a group of entrepreneurs began investigating land to develop a township in the Compensation Beach area. Proclaimed a township in 1954, Ballito, whose name was gleaned from a magazine advertisement meaning “Little Ball”, became a town board in 1966. The town, which reached borough status in 1986, is well-known for its superb, safe beaches and splendid surroundings.
Ballito’s friendly, village atmosphere is a welcome haven from the fast pace of big city life, yet it offers all the modern amenities and services to residents and holiday-makers alike. The Dolphin Coast rentals range from R2,500 to R50,000 per month.
