Today, Toti, as most commonly known by South Africans, is a town offering almost everything that today’s most sophisticated traveller might require, hotels, guest houses, privately rented flats, it’s all there. Inyoni Rocks (Inyoni meaning Place of Birds) is situated on the Northern side of Amanzimtoti’s beautiful bathing beach. Situated to the Southern side along the beach are the two suburbs of Doonside and Warner Beach.
Toti is linked by road and rail to all major centres adding to the reasons making it a perfect destination for the traveller. (If traveling by road and stopping to visit the Dick King homestead, make sure it’s all for the right reason as it’s also where the local traffic department has its headquarters.
Toti offers superb white sandy and scenic beaches with numerous safe swimming facilities, unsurpassed rock, shore and deep sea fishing. All beaches offer safe swimming (offshore shark nets), wide stretches of sand and gentle lagoons. Winklespruit, Inyoni Rocks and Pipeline beach are perfect for the whole family. Whether swimming in the ocean, fishing, surfing, or playing volleyball on the beach there is something for everyone. All beaches are monitored by lifeguards during the day. If you’re an early riser, you can watch the Sharks Board ski-boats launch for the daily checking of shark nets. The KwaZulu Natal region’s coastline of +-160 Kilometre’s, south of Durban is well known as a holiday playground. The warm Indian Ocean sea water temperature on average is 22 degrees Celsius, enjoyed by swimmers all year round.
With its diverse fauna and flora and tranquil natural beauty it offers just as much inland as it does on its beaches.
One can also have a braai (barbeque) or picnic at the preserved riverbank area by taking one of the self-guided Loerie, Mongoose or Mpiti trails which start near the town centre.
Toti is also renowned for water sports such as surfing, paddle skiing and windsurfing. Ski boat trips can also be arranged. Around July the extremely popular annual Sardine Run takes place, you can grab a bucket and join in the excitement of scooping up these little fish as they beach, if you don’t, you’ll definitely want to sit down and watch the birds dipping and diving after the fish.
For the more adventurous among us, Aliwal Shoal a short distance to the South and being internationally recognized as one of the top 10 dive sites in the world, provides an exceptional diving paradise.
The Banana Express is a narrow gauge steam train running between Port Shepstone and Paddock. Departure time on Wednesdays and Saturdays is at 10:00am. The train climbs and winds inland through banana plantations and lush green sugar cane fields, twisting and sometimes almost doubling back on itself as it negotiates the hills and valleys.
There’s a wide choice of shopping facilities, family entertainment, gourmet restaurants and if you still have energy left by night time, you can also take to the streets and enjoy the exciting nightlife.
