Where is the party? Florida Road! It has the best variety for guests, but I always arrange transport and check that they arrived back safely.
Best secret eatery loved by locals: True to its name, Eat Local in downtown Ballito is relatively new and has great prices. I also send guests to The Waterberry for the cakes.
An outdoor activity that’s worth doing? Aside from surfing, of course. Going to Clubventure in Ballito – it has foofy slides, ziplines (which I’ve been on!), offroad gokarts in which you can feel every bump, and paintball.
