WHAT’S HAPPENING ON THE KZN SOUTH COAST THIS EASTER?
The Easter holidays are almost here and with its free Easter Festival and fantastic holiday events lined up, the KZN South Coast is the place be.
Running from 24 March to 10 April, the popular Easter Festival will return, bringing lots of outdoor family fun and activities to beaches and hinterland venues.
“The arrival of autumn brings with it some of the best weather on the KZN South Coast, with sunny skies, calmer seas, and more moderate temperatures. This is the perfect time for outdoor adventures, with our Blue Flag beaches and nature reserves ready to welcome visitors,” explained Phelisa Mangcu, CEO of South Coast Tourism & Investment Enterprise (SCTIE).
“Families will enjoy participating in the free Easter Festival activities, as well as the many other events taking place over this holiday period,” she said.
Running from 24 March to 10 April, 10am to 2pm every day, there will be sports activities, fun competitions, and prizes as the Easter Festival gets underway. This will be hosted at several different beach and hinterland venues across the KZN South Coast, weather permitting. Visitors are encouraged to head to Margate Main Beach where they can take pictures in the SCTIE selfie frames which can be shared on social media with the hashtags #kznsouthcoast #seakznsouthcoast.
