Important note, The KZN Province is renowned of its warm waters and its favourable weather that is almost forever summer. Out of approximately 85% of the visitors from all over the world, at least ±60% of those visitors have heard about the beaches of KZN, highlighting their warm waters and the protection of the beach against shark attacks (a role played solely by the KZN Sharks Board). In return these visitors stay in hotels, they do shopping at our malls and this results into a considerable shopping spend that contributes immensely into the GDP of our province. Our protected beaches become a vehicle that create a platform for exploring strategic economic opportunities within our province.
