SH­EFFIELD BEACH, NORTH COAST, KWAZULU-NATAL TRAVEL TIME 24mins from King Shaka In­ter­na­tional Air­port

Getaway (South Africa) - - TRAVEL - – TEA­GAN CUN­NIFFE

If you are look­ing for a cot­tage right on the beach, then this one is pretty much it. Well, ac­tu­ally, there are two of them, lit­er­ally 10 me­tres from the sea. Sh­effield Beach is quiet, fre­quented mainly by fish­er­men and cou­ples with dogs. The two cot­tages over­look the beach and, sit­ting on the ve­randa, it’s easy to im­merse your­self in the ever-chang­ing sea or keep an eye on the kids. The bot­tom unit is closer to the sea and the im­me­di­ate choice, but the higher unit is just as en­joy­able. The cot­tages are open-plan with sim­ple, good-qual­ity fur­ni­ture made for coastal con­di­tions. There’s a kitch­enette, din­ing ta­ble, lounge and a TV for rainy days. The lounge slid­ing doors pull back com­pletely, cre­at­ing a seam­less tran­si­tion be­tween the cot­tage and the view. Dogs are wel­come (small ones, that is) and a fence keeps them from gal­li­vant­ing off to the beach. DO IT From R1 200 per cou­ple, R500 per ad­di­tional per­son (both cot­tages sleep five). 083-297-0590, sea-cot­
