Below are some of the most popular places you can spend your to catch up on that much needed rest.
Slaap Lekker in Ballito Coastal Town
The not so small holiday town, nestled in the sugar cane along the North Coast, known as Ballito has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in KZN, South Africa. Ballito was once known as a small surfing town made up of just one Shopping Center, a few holiday units and of course, the beach. Perfect for its location, Ballito offered beach goers the flawless family holiday everyone wanted and memories to last a lifetime.
Now as Ballito is booming with investors investing at every opportunity they get (including the new Mega Mall set to open at the end of March), you do not want to miss out on booking holiday accommodation at one of these hot holiday Ballito Accommodation Units. Wake up feeling rested after a lekker slaap!

When is the Best time of the year to book Holiday Accommodation in Ballito?
The nice thing about The North Coast and Ballito accommodation in particular is that all year round we get to enjoy the summer with a few winter days in between. If you are a winter person and still want to be on holiday by the beach, we would suggest booking over the cooler April/May months before winter sets in in June.
If you are looking for the busier and quieter times of the year:
■ Your quieter months for Ballito accommodation are: February, May, June, August and October. So if you are looking for a lekker slaap and you want to avoid the noise, rather come during these quieter months.
■ The busiest months for Ballito accommodation are: January, March, April, July, September, December. This is the best time for the young buks who don’t plan on doing much “lekker slaap”.
