Willards Beach is the main bathing beach with very popular surfing and body boarding spots "Bog" & "Surfers" to the south and "Sunrise" to the north. These beaches are protected by shark nets and have qualified life guards on duty during the day. Don't forget the sun cream!

A 15 minute walk south of Willards Beach you will come across Clarke Bay with its rocky pools on either side of this sandy bay. Lifeguards and shark nets are provided for your protection at this beach as well.

Due south of Clarke Bay you will find Ballito's Tidal Pool built on Ballito Point in between the rocks. Here you should have a very reinvigorating dip as fresh sea water flows into the pool on each high tide. You will also notice a variety of small fish while swimming in the pool. (Caution should be taken when there is heavy surf action).

Ballito Point at times has a good left break for the surfers into Salmon Bay.

Salmon Bay is home to one of the North Coast oldest Ski Boat launch sites. Frequented by Ski Boat, Jet Ski and Paddle Ski fishermen, who catch a large variety
of fish. This legendary bay is one of the most productive areas for rock and surf anglers. Fishing from the rocky points or from the beach, something is bound to happen.
