"Divers Paradise of South Africa" Sodwana Bay National Park by MikeAtSea

Sodwana Bay National Park Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 33 photos

Sodwana Bay is undoubtedly the diver’s paradise in South Africa. Boasting the most southern coral reef in the world many reefs can be found off the coast.
Because of its warm waters brought down from the Mozambique Current it makes it a pleasant diving region.
The coral however does not form a continuous reef but splits in separated into a number of reefs.
All are reached from the launching area of Jesser Point, and are done by small boat through the surf. Divers help to push the boat into the shallows, jump in once the engines have started and then hold tight as the skipper steers the boat through the oncoming surf.

Besides diving Sodwana Bay offers excellent game fishing and several nature reserves right on its door step. The town itself has got nothing much to offer, except a few stores, many dive operators and a few local pubs.

    Some excellent tips on a great page! I had a great time in Sodwana, pity i couldn't get a shot at scuba diving, only snorkelling. Can't wait to go back!
