5. From Coast to Coast 

One of our East Coast Radio listeners shares, “KZN is bigger then just Durban. Head to the North Coast and see St Lucia, explore Richard’s Bay or even the bustling town of Ballito. Or, head down South grab a waffle at the famous Waffle House, drive through Margate and see everything to offer near the Southbroom area.”

There is so much to do in the outskirts of our province. Just a couple of hours away you can enter a world of all things new.
