South Coast - KwaZulu-Natal

Nature Retreat


Family Holiday


Beach Holiday


Located at the southern tip of Kwazulu-Natal, this beautiful Resort is ideally located on the unspoilt Umtamvuna River. Indigenous coastal dunes, lush gardens and sub-tropical parkland, all contribute to the Tortuga experience.

With its own private boat-launching facility on the river, and direct access to the beach, Caribbean Estates is set to be the perfect spot for water-sports enthusiasts, beach-lovers and anglers alike. There are also loads of other activities to keep the whole family entertained, such as floodlit tennis courts, swimming pools, hiking, horseback riding, jet skiing, golf and cruises.

Enjoy the beauty of nature, explore the nearby Umtamvuna Nature Reserve or take the scenic route to Durban, a mere 180 kilometres north of Tortuga. With activities to suit every mood, Tortuga is exactly what you have been dreaming of.
