The Info List - Hibberdene

--- Advertisement ---

Hibberdene is a small coastal town on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast in South Africa. It was named after C. Maxwell-Hibberd, the former postmaster-general of Natal. Hibberdene is considered the gateway to the Hibiscus Coast, a seaside town situated 97 km south of Durban, halfway between Scottburgh and Margate. Hibberdene has become a popular holiday destination with local and foreign tourists. It is known as an affordable destination and for its beaches. Hibberdene has five popular beaches, four of which are netted and thus are safe for swimming. Hibberdene’s beaches are popular because of the warm Indian Ocean flowing across its shoreline, making diving, snorkelling and scuba diving very pleasant. Hibberdene serves as a shopping centre for the small settlements and countryside surrounding it. There are plans of establishing a small craft marina in Hibberdene. A twice daily shuttle bus stops in Hibberdene connecting the town with Margate, Port Shepstone, Durban and King Shaka International Airport. Hibberdene is located near the mouth of the Umzimai or Mzimayi River[2] on the northwesterly line of equal latitude and longitude where it reaches the coast of Africa at 30°35′3″S 30°34′15″E / 30.58417°S 30.57083°E / -30.58417; 30.57083.
