Margate

Margate, named after a seaside English town, has grown into one of the most popular holiday resorts on the lower south coast.

It has a beach with protected swimming, a tidal pool, fishing pier, pleasant walks, canoeing in the Nkhongweni River (meaning the place of entreatment) and plenty of organised entertainment which is particularly favoured by the young people. Margate received international publicity in 1922 when a so-called sea monster was washed up on the beach. Unfortunately the ‘Margate Monster’ was too decomposed to be identified accurately.

The Riverbend Crocodile Farm, 8km south of Margate, is the home to more than 200 Nile crocodiles ranging in size from newborn hatchlings to 50-year-old giants.
