With your map spread out on while planning your South Africa trip, you can be forgiven for overlooking the tiny village of Tugela Mouth, South Africa. In fact, it might not even be on your map! However, this beautiful little place is well worth a day or two of anyone's time and there is Tugela Mouth, South Africa hostel accommodation here, too.
The village is located right where the Tugela River meets the sea, and there are wonderful views over the estuary from most of the properties on the sea side of the village. It's also a lovely place to walk. Tugela Beach stretches a long way north, but this is not a resort beach. It is wild, with driftwood and vegetation littering the sand, and the waves crashing in. It is a favored haunt of South African fishermen and the weekends see dozens of them lined up along the beach.
There is some lovely riverine forest here, too. If you are a bird watcher, you'll find at least three different species each of barbet and sunbird and there are many waders around the estuary. Vervet monkeys are also very common here. If it's beautiful nature you want, you'll find it here.
Above all, this is a place to rest and relax. Just sit out on your balcony with a drink and take in the views. There's plenty of accommodation here, including small-scale family guesthouses and hostels in Tugela Mouth, South Africa.
Every couple of months, there is a beach party organized by a Tugela Mouth, South Africa hostel with music and movies. The place is booked out for these weekends and the garden is full of campers. This is about as busy as Tugela Mouth gets.
Tugela Mouth is just five kilometers southeast of the N2 that runs from Durban right along the north coast to the Mozambique border. Mandeni is the nearest transport hub, and the site of a massive shopping mall and minibus taxi station. From here, it's a short minibus taxi ride of thirty minutes or so, or a fifteen-kilometer drive.
