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