town in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Ballito is a coastal town on the North Coast (KwaZulu-Natal) of South Africa. It's mainly a resort town, featuring beaches and condominiums. As Ballito has nothing interesting to offer beside the beach it make sense to travel further north or south as the beaches there are as nice as in Ballito.

The beach walk at Ballito

Get inEdit

By carEdit
