Situated about 150 kilometres south of King Shaka International Airport in Durban, on the Hibiscus Coast of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa's East Coast. Southbroom retains a village atmosphere, yet is only minutes away from everything you need.
The village is situated between the Mbizane River to the north and the Umkobi River in the south and surrounds one of the best golf courses on the Hibiscus Coast.
Sumptuous homes, rocky bays with unspoiled dunes lapped by the warm Indian Ocean and areas of natural forest combine to make Southbroom one of the jewels of the South African coastline. A tidal pool and protected bathing beach add to the attractions.
In 1933 brothers Gilbert & Frank Eyles formed a partnership and set about planning a park-like residential township on the land acquired by their father, Alfred Eyles, before the turn of the century. A boarding house later became a hotel. Several cottages were soon dotted around the northern part of the town.
Today Southboom is a leafy, up-market village with luxury accommodation, a bowling green, tennis courts, a top-class 18-hole golf course, two beach front restaurants, a supermarket, bottle store, craft shop & art gallery.
The excellent swimming & surfing beach, well known among local surfers as well as the international surfing contingent, has both life guards & shark nets and provides good, safe surfing for beginners and experienced surfers alike.
