Summertime Of Sunrises & Sunsets

The festive lights have been put away,  the year-end holiday makers and party revellers have all made their way back home to start the New Year.  Now is the perfect time to sneak in a quiet getaway to the beach and enjoy a relaxing stay at Clarke Bay Cottage.

The glistening waters and golden beaches are beckoning you to come and enjoy the magnificent Dolphin Coast sunrises for early morning jogs, walking the dogs, getting your Zen on with some sun salutations, ambling along or just taking a moment on a wooden bench along the Ballito promenade to breathe in the splendour of Summer time, with luck… spotting a dolphin or two bobbing their good mornings to the early risers. Listen to the distant buzzing of the fisherman jetting off from the launch site to spend the day out at sea or just dotting the rocks from the shores, seeking the catch of the day.

Explore the rock pools and nearby beaches or jump into some outdoor adventures of trail, walking & mountain biking, or perhaps some para-ziplining. There is so much that Ballito has to offer, take some time to stop in at a bespoke coffee stop for a mid-morning cup of aroma. An array of local restaurants offering cuisine to tantalise your taste buds, specialising in local “Durban Curries” to gorgeous Poke Bowls, Seafood deluxe and many more gastronomical delights.

Nearby shopping malls, Ballito Junction Regional Mall and Lifestyle Centre amongst others are showcasing the proverbial January sales for a spot of bargain shopping. The local markets are not to be missed for indulging in some outdoor browsing for  local arts and crafts… a day outing will  take you perhaps to Litchi Orchard, Sage, Sugar Rush, Burnedale….a real treat.

A perfect day always ends  with a perfect sunset, time to relax either around the barbeque boma or shaded verandah at Clarke Bay cottage, or finding a table at an ocean side restaurant to take in the magic of changing amber skies from day to night whilst sipping on a cocktail or two followed by greek mezze or seafood platter…head off to “The Market” and experience a bit of Mexican Salsa or a Burger & craft beer….a night cap of Gin mixology at Alchemy is the perfect way to end a perfect day.

Be our guest and grab some time or a weekend break,  to create your own memories of Summertime of Sunrises and Sunsets…….
