It’s time to head to Rocky Bay Resorts for KAP sani2C and more outdoor autumn adventures

As the summer days fade and autumn approaches, most of the country starts preparing for much cooler weather that calls for the indoors. Not on the KZN South Coast! With the temperate coastal climate, autumn is considered one of the best seasons for outdoor adventure - and Rocky Bay Resorts is the ultimate seaside destination. 

 “One of the area’s best-kept secrets is that autumn, with its milder climate and clear, sunny days, is actually the best time of year to head to the KZN South Coast,” explained Annien Koulountis, Resorts Manager at Rocky Bay Resorts. “The diving off Aliwal Shoal is spectacular and the beach days are wonderful. The early mornings and late afternoons are also the ideal time to enjoy some birdwatching or go exploring the various hiking trails. With so many public holidays and our fantastic accommodation specials running at this time, it’s best to book early!”
