Boasting direct access to miles of picturesque, protected beaches, The Oyster Box is paradise for lovers of the sun, sea and sand. Embrace the glorious sub-tropical climate and simply relax on a luxurious sun lounger, no matter what the time of year. Explore the strikingly beautiful surrounding area - departing from the historic Umhlanga Lighthouse - on your choice of coastal path, before cooling off with a dip in the Indian Ocean. Refuel after hours of beach fun, with a wood-fire pizza or fresh seafood at The Ocean Terrace.
