Holiday Rental House
C'est La Vie Beach House is situated in one of the most exclusive suburbs, known as the ‘Clifton’ of KwaZulu-Natal - Sheffield Beach. Sheffield Beach is a rather small beach compared to the others in the area, but it has some beautiful sheltered coves and superb rock pools which are well known for snorkeling and spear fishing (permit required). This lovely beach situated just north of Salt Rock and only 10 minutes from Ballito, is one of the best places to enjoy a day in the sun. The rocks of Sheffield Beach give way to a perfect bathing area and the coastline offers some amazing sightings of dolphins, or whales during the whale season (August). There are also excellent fishing (permit required) and diving spots at Christmas Bay, immediately north of Sheffield Beach.
