It is located sandwiched between Sunwich Port and Sea Park, on the South Coast of KwaZulu Natal.
Southport and the various little Suburbs, tend to regard themselves as extensions of Port Shepstone, so there is rarely anything to disturb a holiday idyll along this lovely stretch of Coastline. There is only 8 kilometres of travel to reach the variety of Shops, Restaurants and other entertainment in Port Shepstone, or the ‘buzz’ of Beach resorts in Shelly Beach, St Michaels, Uvongo and Margate. (Southport is popular amongst those who seek the buzz only when and if they choose to do so.)
Southport in the old days was little more than a Railway Siding. However in today's time; there are at least 10 golf courses within a 50 kilometre radius of Southport; nature Reserves, hiking trails and snorkelling sites abound. Some of the best fishing spots are very close by; Oribi Gorge is just inland of Southport and well worth a day’s visit and, if you are a diving fanatic, Aliwal Shoal is close to the Village of Umkomaas. This is only one of the most spectacular dives particularly in the Cathedral Area of the reef. The Southport Beach is very popular and both holiday makers and locals keep on returning to it and it is not difficult to understand why it is such a firm favorite. Also known as the Anerley Beach, this picturesque beach has it all. With a safe swimming beach that is manned by capable life guards, shark nets, a tidal pool that is both kid and adult friendly, rocky areas and rock pools to explore, gorgeous views and to top it all; it is a Blue Flag beach. This little Suburb is a perfect location for a Beach Holiday or retirement!
