Mabibi Beach is one of the last undeveloped beaches left on the African coastline, located in the small town of Mabibi, just 25km north of Sodwana Bay in KwaZulu-Natal. Set within the gorgeous iSimangaliso Wetlands Park, the beach is hidden within a sheltered bay surrounded by exquisite coastal forest and dunes. If that hasn’t conjured up an image of a tropical paradise, perhaps the crystal-clear water, which offers tranquil swimming, snorkelling on coral reefs, and offshore scuba diving, will.
Mabibi Beach is perfect for those enjoy the solitude of a deserted beach. It is reached by an off-road vehicle through the sand, subtropical forest, and coastal dunes. Once you arrive, you’ll be overwhelmed by this footprint-free wonderland, equipped with a rustic campsite and little else.
