Overlooking the beach at Salt Rock on the subtropical kwaZulu-Natal coast, Canelands Beach Club offers a luxurious beach getaway close to the charming town of Ballito. Under an hour's drive from Durban and only 15 minutes from King Shaka International Airport, such a convenient location means that this boutique hotel is the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area or as an overnight stay en route to Phinda Private Game Reserve or the KZN Battlefields.

Start the day with a stroll along the sandy beach, keeping an eye out for dolphins cavorting in the warm Indian Ocean as you go (there is a swimming beach nearby and Canelands has a long infinity pool overlooking the sea). There is an extensive list of activities in the upscale neighbourhood which includes world-class golfing, diving, horse-back trips, gourmet dining and water sports.
