Ballito at a glance

Ballito property: A profile of Ballito property from a buyer’s perspective, with information on facilities and attractions.

Ballito Property

Ballito property is amongst the most sought after and valued real estate in the country. This suburb is located 20 minutes north of Durban, South Africa’s principle port city and Indian Ocean playground.

Surrounded by lush, green sugar cane fields and perfectly positioned alongside the golden beaches of the scenic Dolphin Coast, Ballito properties vary from affordable, modern, low maintenance apartments to multi-million rand beachfront villas with all the creature comforts – swimming pools, self catering studios and 24-hour security.

Principally a warm and welcoming holiday resort, Ballito properties have always been attractive to investors. This is because the area offers a variety of affordable coastal getaways that provide lucrative rental income during the long KwaZulu Natal holiday season.

As the gateway to the province’s major tourist destinations – Zululand, Valley of 1000 Hills, Big Five game reserves and the ever-popular Battlefields Route – Ballito is a quintessential North Coast holiday destination and the chosen sea-side home of a growing population of permanent residents.

Ballito Attractions

Ballito real estate is set in close proximity to numerous attractions, not least of which are the safe, warm water swimming beaches of Willard Beach, Clarke Bay and Boulder Beach which annually hosts the Mr Price Pro international surfing event.

Sizeable pods of Bottlenose dolphin populate the Ballito coastline, so it is not unusual to spot literally hundreds of dolphins frolicking close to the shoreline.

The perennially popular big game safari destination, Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve, is only 257 km north of Ballito. The Harold Johnson Nature Reserve, situated on the banks of the Tugela River, offers excellent birding opportunities, nature trails and fascinating national monuments dating from the Anglo-Boer War.

Avid golfers can select from the Peter Matkovitch-designed parklands course of Umhlali, where discerning property investors opt for exclusive golf estate living; or the world-renowned Zimbali Golf Course which features the perfect blend of coastal links, rough wetlands and thick, coastal forest.

Ballito Facilities

Although Ballito is first a vacation destination, prime Ballito properties are well serviced by an assortment of facilities and essential services.

A host of private and public schools offer good education including Seaforth College, Crawford Prep and Umhlali, Maidstone and Sandfields Primary Schools. The area’s large, modern malls provide versatile shopping opportunities. First class medical care is available at the Netcare Alberlito Hospital and the Umhlali Police Station provides emergency services.
