Escape the city, embrace the beach

Cast in the shade of the Maputaland coastal forest and treated to a view of the ocean, Rocktail Beach Camp exudes an atmosphere as serene as its surroundings. The beach is a mere 20-minute walk from the camp, with the Maputaland Marine Reserve not far off. 

The forest is home to a number of animal and bird species, while the reefs are replete with a wide variety of coral and fish. Diving opportunities here are considered to be some of the best in the world, and the nearby dive centre offers diving courses to amateurs and enthusiasts alike. Accredited divers can enjoy the open water and its colourful reefs right out of the gate, weather permitting. 

17 Rooms offer guests a comfortable and refreshing retreat after a day of exploring the surroundings or spent at the beach. Each features an en-suite bathroom, while seven are Family Rooms with an additional bedroom. For those on a romantic getaway, the Honeymoon Suite is an intimate option that offers views of the forest and ocean beyond.
