Paddle Boats at Uvongo Beach

Just a short drive North of Margate Beach, lies the small yet popular Uvongo Beach. Local entrepreneurs rent colourful paddle boats to visitors so that they can enjoy a leisurely trip up the lagoon towards the Uvongo waterfall.

Uvongo Beach is protected by lifeguards who keep a keen lookout from their tower perched on the rocks. Visitors can also enjoy swimming in the splash pool, buying an ice-cream or bodyboard at the shop, enjoying a meal at the local restaurant or buy curios from the local traders.
