Party into 2017 at a New Year’s Eve beach party

If you’re in KZN for the holidays and plan on seeing in the New Year here, there’s no better way to do that than on the beach.

All along the KZN coast, towns have latched on to the concept of beach parties and they are growing in popularity amongst locals as well as holidaymakers. From Zinkwazi to Margate – you’re spoilt for choice.

Beach Bums

Beach Bums on Casuarina Beach in Westbrook has definitely become an institution in Durban. No holiday is complete without having a cocktail on the beach while enjoying really good food.

During the week guests can enjoy a music programme that blends various genres of music. DJs perform every Friday and Saturday and Sundays are dedicated to live music with different bands appearing every week.

This year, guests can look forward to a Graffiti New Year’s Eve beach party at Beach Bums. It sounds like great fun so check out their Facebook and Instagram feeds for more details.

Ballito Street Party

  1. This sounds EPIC!!! I’m so there this year.

  2. I’ve been surfing online greater than three
    hours today, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing
    article like yours. It’s beautiful piece sufficient for me.
    Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you did, the
    web will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  3. Thank you for the encouragement and kind words. I really appreciate it 🙂
