Salt Rock is a small town just north of
Shaka's Rock on
Dolphin Coast of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. It is a favorite
holiday destination for many local South Africans. It is about 40
minutes north of Durban. There are plenty of fishing spots along the
coast from Salt Rock, through
Shaka's Rock to
Ballito and Salmon Bay.
Salt Rock owes much of its history to Basil Hulett and his wife Gwen
who started not only the
Salt Rock Hotel but went on to develop the
Salt Rock as found today. Nightlife in the small town is
limited with a handful of pubs and restaurants offering a variety of
food and drinks. A new development, Sheffield Manor, is situated in
Salt Rock as well as the newly built Tiffany's Shopping Mall.
As well as providing some fishing spots, there are reefs offshore. The
main beach has lifeguards on duty, shark protected and a surfing site.
Close to the main beach is a large tidal pool, which was originally
built for guests staying at the hotel.
