About PawPaw Place

Located on a very quiet stretch of KwaZulu-Natal’s South Coast, midway between Port Shepstone and Hibberdene, this house provides the ideal seaside holiday. Besides a stunning sea view, the beach is a mere 40 metres away. Within minutes the entire family can pursue their own favourite activity such as surfing, fishing or swimming.

Banana Beach is a flagged Beach with lifesavers on duty throughout high season and over weekends throughout the year. Enjoy surfing, snorkelling, paddling in the large tidal pool, taking tranquil walks along the beach and clusters of rocks and pools, or chilling at home on the patio in the shade of the giant milkwood trees. Watch the whales and dolphins as they frolic in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

Besides immediate access to Banana Beach, PawPaw Place is also very close to 3 of KZN's 7 Blue Flag Beaches. Southport Beach, a little over 5 km's to the south, Umzumbe Beach, approximately 5 km's to the north, as well as Hibberdene's Beach, 11 km's to the north, have all been awarded Blue Flag status.

PawPaw Place is in close proximity to a variety of other pursuits including a ski boat slipway, deep sea angling charters, nature and game reserves, the Oribi Gorge and seven well-known golf courses; the closest being Port Shepstone.

As for the necessities, large supermarket and shopping facilities are available in either Port Shepstone or Hibberdene. They are a mere 12 to 15 minutes’ drive by car. The more serious shopper could venture further to the Shelley Shopping Centre.
