About
Description
Situated on the sunny South Coast of KwaZulu Natal, Margate is one of the prime holiday destinations in South Africa. The Albatros Guest House & Golf Tours. Situated within walking distance of the beach & More bustling village, while at the same time in the middle of the notorious 'Golf Coast'. From the pool deck or your own private balcony, you have an expansive 180° sea view, where you can relax and watch whales & dolphins which abound during the natural phenomenon of the annual sardine run, 'the greatest shoal on earth'. Each of our luxury air-conditioned rooms has a full en-suite or private bathroom (shower & bath), TV, tea & coffee, and balcony with sea view. Breakfast is enjoyed on the deck in the mornings - a great way to start the day. Children over 12 years are welcome. Other facilities include a sauna, Jacuzzi, swimming pool, bar, pool table and undercover braai (barbecue) area. If lazing around the pool is not for you, there is plenty to keep you busy during your stay with us. Sandy beaches stretch for miles along the coast of the warm Indian ocean, which offers a variety of activities including safe, protected swimming, surfing, or scuba diving with the sharks at Protea Banks and Aliwal Shoal. Whale & dolphin watching boat trips, angling and deep sea fishing trips are also very popular. For the avid golfer, the area boasts 6 of South Africa's top 100 golf courses according to the Complete Golfer Rankings, which are guaranteed to test your skills & astound you with their scenery.For the nature lover or adrenalin junkie, extreme adventures at the spectacular white river rafting - in season. There are a host of restaurants & pubs, where you can enjoy a quick bite to eat or a leisurely evening meal. A visit to a crocodile farm, a flip in a microlite, gambling at the Wild Coast Casino, arts & crafts, horse riding we have it all. Less
