Port Edward, a small holiday town with a beautiful white sand beach and first class surfing. All the usual shopping and banking facilities are located here, plus an excellent 9-hole golf course, bowling greens and squash courts.

The renowned Wild Coast Sun Resort and Casino is five minutes drive south of Caribbean Estates. Apart from the attractions of the casino itself, there are cabarets, restaurants, a fabulous children’s entertainment centre with a tenpin bowling alley and a wide variety of sports, including water sports on the river.

Caribbean Estates offers braai areas at the pool and in the boma (enclosure) down by the river. Each villa is equipped with its own Weber braai facility.

A day spent at the Old Pont Resort, two kilometers up-river, is a delight. Launch your boat from there, or just relax by the water with a picnic basket and enjoy the wonderful view.

The entire South Coast boasts superb beaches: take your pick from fun-filled and popular resorts to secluded and unspoilt coves. Fishing is excellent and there are numerous favoured spots where one can try for that “big one”. Deep sea charters are also available. Scuba diving has become a keenly followed pastime and there is a good choice of reefs to explore in the area.

The lower South Coast has an excellent choice of restaurants catering for all tastes and nationalities. In the vicinity of Caribbean Estates visitors can find Chinese, Spanish, Italian, Indian, English, French and German food – not forgetting the ubiquitous hamburger and pizza. Many restaurants are in the most beautiful settings – whether overlooking the sea, lagoons or rivers or nestling in idyllic rural scenery.

Margate is 30 kilometers north of Caribbean Estates and offers a wide variety of holiday entertainment and shopping.

There is also the exciting Wild Waves Water Park which I situated in the Wild Coast Sun Resort, this Water Park is a great attraction for family bonding and fun times.
