Tun­ing you straight

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

We want to come down to KZN dur­ing the June hol­i­days. The plan is to visit my sis­ter in Dur­ban, and then show the fam­ily of four, which in­cludes a girl of 12 and a boy of 14, the South Coast. My hubby and I want to rest, while the teens en­ter­tain them­selves in a safe place with LOTS to do. Yes, I’m ask­ing the im­pos­si­ble, but

What can you rec­om­mend? Elsa Cil­liers, Cen­tu­rion

Three words: Wild Coast Sun. An old favourite with us coastal types, the re­sort has in re­cent times been up­graded to the tune of some R400 mil­lion and should meet all your re­quire­ments.

On the bor­der of the KZN and Eastern Cape, the 35-year-old land­mark is no longer just known for its casino, although that is still op­er­at­ing. (How­ever, if it’s gam­bling you want, we rec­om­mend Sun Coast, a short turn left from Dur­ban up the North Coast.)

Sun In­ter­na­tional has in­stead turned the Wild Coast Sun into a hol­i­day re­sort with the fo­cus on en­ter­tain­ing fam­i­lies.

The ta­bles at Chico’s Buf­fet groan un­der all the food and the bal­conies in the rooms of­fer views over the In­dian Ocean and the wild waves that gave this part of the coast its name.

The teens (and par­ents) can have ex­treme fun at the Wild Waves Wa­ter Park. Horse rides on the beach, some of the best golf­ing in SA, a bowl­ing al­ley and long hikes are also on the to-do list.

To get there, make a short right on the N2 from Dur­ban and fol­low the high­way all the way to the re­sort’s en­trance.
