Have a toasted tuna mayo and slap chips at the Sod­wana Beach Kiosk.

go! - - Contents - – Bry­ony McCormick


In the dap­pled shade of indige­nous ca­sua­r­ina trees, over­look­ing Jesser Point, the Sod­wana Beach Kiosk is a shel­tered, rus­tic haven for divers, fish­er­men, beachgoers and lo­cals alike. The menu is sim­ple: Think break­fast fry-ups, healthy muesli and yo­ghurt bowls, toasties, slap chips and one or two daily spe­cials. The cof­fee is de­cent and the cooldrinks are cold. You’ll also find a ba­sic se­lec­tion of first aid type prod­ucts like Panado and Zam-Buk, plus a scat­ter­ing of snacks like crisps, peanuts and chocolates. Noth­ing on the menu will break the bank and ev­ery­thing is cooked to or­der, so it comes out fresh, hot and de­li­cious. A toastie will set you back about R40 and comes with fries that will make you con­sider or­der­ing the same thing all over again. Try the toasted tuna-mayo sarmie – it re­ally hit the spot af­ter two scuba-dives – or start your day right with a break­fast bowl of fresh fruit, yo­ghurt, honey and muesli. When in doubt, add ex­tra avo: The lo­cal va­ri­ety is enor­mous, but­tery, smooth and de­li­cious. And all of this comes with a fan­tas­tic view of Sod­wana Beach. Where: Jesser Point, Sod­wana Bay (about 360 km north of Dur­ban via the N2 and R22). GPS: S27.54111 E32.67861 Open­ing times: Daily from 7 am un­til around 4 pm. If the dive char­ter boats are on the beach, the kiosk is open. Con­tact: Via the co­conut tele­phone… (In other words, none.)
