Ballito Cottages And Backpackers is surrounded by natural forest, the wild life is plentiful with Vervet Monkeys, bird life, porcupines, crown eagles, the majestic owl, mongoose and a variety of reptile species. It is a very peaceful and tranquil place. We have the Townsend park across the road which hosts mini football, action cricket, the scout hall for functions and a children's playing area. We have a magnificent viewing deck which offers sea views as far as Sheffield Beach and further down the North Coast.
We are 3 minutes from the beach by car or you can take the stairway down to the beach and shops. We are visited by a large number of independent musicians who enjoy jamming around our pool. We are also members of the Ballito monkey rescue and rehabilitation center and are dedicated to promoting the welfare of the African Vervet Monkey. The Cottages support KZN wildlife and their anti-poaching network.
