Kingfisher Lakeside Retreat
A slice of paradise …
LUXURIOUS OUTDOORS EXPERIENCE
Let me tell you about Kingfisher Lakeside Retreat, a little slice of heaven down on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. You’ll find it in the charming village of Trafalgar, perched right by the newly spruced-up Black Lake. It’s like our secret spot, right on the edge of the Mpenjati Nature Reserve, and just a breezy 5-minute stroll to a pure, untouched beach.
Kingfisher Lakeside Retreat is all about that fancy, outdoor vibe, with cozy glamping-tents and cottages that are next-level comfortable. It’s for the folks who want the best of both worlds – camping’s freedom and nature’s embrace, all mixed with the ease of top-notch self-catering setups.
By the way, KZNNA pays these guys a visit regularly, so why not come hang out with us? 🌿🏕️🌞
PALM BEACH CHALETS
Meet John and Mandy Dutton – your guides to an unforgettable time at Palm Beach. Just a hop, skip, and a jump from Port Edward on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal, you’ll stumble upon the incredible Palm Beach Chalets. Nestled close to the Mpenjati Nature Reserve, our chalets serve up breathtaking views, a symphony of birds, and the chance to spot some critters.
Now, if you’re into top-notch fishing, you’re in luck, because Palm Beach is your playground. But it’s not just about the angling here. This spot is a clothing optional haven for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. If you’re thinking of cranking up the music and partying all night, Palm Beach Chalets might not be your jam. But if you’re up for some serious relaxation with the sounds of nature as your backdrop and tranquil evenings, this place is calling your name. 🏖️🌅🌿
KZN Naturist beaches
Down in KZN, we’ve got a couple of unofficial spots that naturists have been hitting up for over three decades. You’ve got Mpenjati on the South Coast and Umhlanga Lagoon beach up on the North Coast.
Now, here’s the deal – there aren’t any beaches in South Africa where getting your tan on in the buff is totally legal. So, folks who decide to bare it all at these spots are technically taking a bit of a gamble. But the good news is, no one’s actually been taken to task for going au naturel on these beaches in a long, long time. 🏖️😎🌞
Mpenjati Beach (Unofficial)
Mpenjati naturist beach? It’s a bit north of the Mpenjati River mouth. The beach is pretty roomy and flat, and the waves aren’t too crazy most of the time. Naturists and regular beachgoers chill here together, no biggie.
Now, gotta mention, there aren’t any lifeguards or shark-fighting gear on this beach. So, you gotta play it safe when you’re hanging out there. 😎🏖️🌊
Umhlanga Lagoon (Unofficial)
Now, the naturist beach at Umhlanga Lagoon is another spot folks know about in KZN. Check it out – on the south side of the lagoon mouth, you’ll usually find the single guys hanging out, while on the north side, it’s mostly couples.
But here’s the scoop: the waves can get pretty wild, and there are some rocky spots in there. No lifeguards on duty, so you’ve gotta be super careful. Safety first, always! 😌🌅🌊
Please note that high levels of toxic chemicals ended up in the lagoon in July 2021 and the lagoon and surrounding wetland were contaminated with highly toxic chemicals including arsenic, atrazine and bromoxynil.
