Holiday Guide to Zinkwazi


Getaway Magazine

A guide to Zinkwazi - beach-holiday paradise on South Africa's North Coast.

“I don’t usually order pizza at 11am, but it was an unusual morning and, besides, I had nothing better to do.  Sunshine sparkled on a receding wave and fluffy cumulus drifted serenely overhead, but I was in a mood, and not even a breakfast pizza could cure it.

I sat back on the beach and thought about the birds. I’d never heard anything quite like it. Until about three o’clock that morning I’d believed I quite liked birds, but that had all changed now. The birds were to blame. Their incessant night-long cacophony was to blame. And so, with perhaps five minutes of sleep and a hatred of all things avian, I was shoving pizza into my face on an empty KZN beach and obstinately refusing to take any of it in.”
