Driftwood Cottage

Little Maritzburg Road, Umhlali Beach, Dolphin Coast, South Africa

Driftwood Cottage is a self-catering holiday home sleeping six guests in three bedrooms. A little piece of paradise between trees and a relaxing seaside village situated on the Dolphin Coast. One of the main features of this home is the sheltered entertainment area located under a canopy of milkwood trees, perfect for warm summer evenings with loved ones. A private path leads you to the beach, only 25 metres away from your accommodation.

Salt Rock Beach is the main beach of the little town of the same name, which is perched along the coast of KwaZulu-Natal. It is idyllic for its palm trees, white sand, and warm turquoise waters. And, thanks to its being protected by shark nets in the water and lifeguards on the beach, it is a fantastic choice for families and those that want to cool off in the temperate waters of the Dolphin Coast.

The town of Salt Rock is just north of the holiday hotspot of Ballito, about 45 minutes from the centre of Durban, and about 25 minutes from its international airport.
