Margate - South Coast, Kwa-Zulu Natal

Rikki Cabs > Uncategorized > Margate – South Coast, Kwa-Zulu Natal

Margate is a seaside resort town on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast, about 20 kilometres southwest of Port Shepstone. 

In 1908, Henry Richardson, an English surveyor, laid out the town and named it Margate after another seaside resort on the northern coast of the county of Kent, in the United Kingdom. 

Why is Margate a popular destination in South Africa?

It features Blue Flag Beaches for swimming, snorkelling, and surfing. Many apartment buildings offer accommodation for residents and visitors. It also contains a shopping street and many restaurants, pubs, and nightclubs, known as a popular spot where many South Africans and foreign visitors spend their vacation.

Which is the busiest period?

The busiest season is during school and public holidays when inland residents travel to the coast. Christmas and Easter are especially busy times, with the main street often clogged with heavy traffic during these times.
