Manaba Beach is situated between St Michael’s and Uvongo on the beautiful Hibiscus South Coast of KwaZulu Natal in South Africa. The popular holiday destination has many seafront self-catering holiday homes along its picturesque coastline.
This beautiful stretch of coastline is well known for its beaches, bays and fishing spots. Lucien Beach, a “Blue Flag Beach” is the main swimming beach in Manaba Beach. It is well maintained with lifeguards on duty and stairs down to the beach. You can walk to Margate Main Beach from Lucien Beach and this popular surfing beach has an elevated parking bay from which you can view whales, dolphins and sardines activity during the winter months.
Lilliecrona Boulevard is the seaside road that stretches between Uvongo beach and Lucien Beach. This scenic road is popular with locals and holiday makers alike for walking, jogging and cycling. Shad bay is on this stretch of coastline and as its name implies it is a “hot spot” for the tasty silver fish when they are on the bite. The open season for these popular fish is frenetic as fishermen chase the shoals along the coastline.
As most of the seaside accommodation in Manaba Beach is built on the hillside the sea views are spectacular. This is a truly beautiful stretch of the Hibiscus Coastline.
