Beach access is direct via a private wooden boardwalk and stairs through a nature conservancy area. The gate leading to the boardwalk is at the bottom of the apartment building. The beach in front of Ocean Reef is very wide and quiet, but not guarded. The Zinkwazi main beach is a few minutes away by car or on foot and is guarded.

Other things to note
The apartment is situated on the 2nd floor (3rd US) and there is no elevator. To access the apartment from the parking guests can either use a gently sloping pathway or use a wooden boardwalk and stairs. By stairs, guests go down 2 flights of stairs to reach the 1st floor landing of the apartment building before climbing up.
The path to the beach goes over a sand dune so there is about one floor to go up and one floor to go down when going to the beach

The apartment is not serviced, however daily or once-off servicing could be arranged for a fee.

Location

Nkwazi, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Zinkwazi is a secluded small town on the North Coast roughly 1h North of Durban. The main beach in Zinkwazi is located on a lagoon formed at the estuary of the Zinkwazi River with long beach white sand beaches stretching for kilometers on either side of the town. Large pods of dolphins regularly swim past and whales visit between July and November. Fishing, musseling and crayfishing are all possible with the appropriate licenses.

There are a few shops and businesses in a small shopping centre close to the entrance to Zinkwazi. Excellent shopping and dining is available in Ballito (40km away) and in Umhlanga (60km away).

For golfers there are a number of world class golf courses in the area. Prince's Grant and Zimbali are both in incredibly scenic settings and are a must play for the avid golfer. Within close range one can find and organise microlight flights, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, dolphin watching and surfing.
