Eating out is a treat for many people, and nothing makes the experience more enjoyable than visiting locations with the best views.

KwaZulu-Natal has no shortage of picturesque locations, but there is something extra special about seaside restaurants. 

The stress-relieving effect of watching the waves crash and the calming sounds of the ocean help you feel relaxed. Add a delicious plate of food and it makes for the perfect outing with friends, family, and close colleagues. 

Here's a look at four restaurant locations with amazing sea views.
