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.
Margate is one of South Africa's most popular beach holday destinations. It's humid, island style climate attracts holiday makers all year around.
