A guest blog post from Lungi Bushell.
The Dolphin Coast still remains a popular holiday spot and reminds me of beach holidays my parents would take us to when we were still young. The Dolphin Coast is a strip of coastline stretching from the North coast of Durban to the South. The area offers year-round warm weather, so if like me you prefer quieter beach holidays away from the masses, it is still possible to enjoy a swimming holiday even in the middle of winter with the weather averaging around 22 degrees Celsius.
