Canelands Beach Club and Spa is a beach front hotel situated on the Dolphin Coast in Salt Rock just minutes from the shopping centres of Ballito and about an hour from Durban. This area is favoured in the December season by South African visitors from Johannesburg and is a great choice in July/August when this tropical area has temperatures around the 20 degree mark.

Canelands is one of the very few properties in South Africa which is a few metres from the Indian Ocean. Its location on Tiffany beach offers walks on this long stretch of surf beach, a swimming beach a few minutes’ walk away and the protected rock pools on your door step that Salt Rock is renowned for. A long wooden deck runs the length of the property overlooking the 25 metre lap pool and beach, with pool loungers, service beach area, bar, restaurant and sitting areas for soaking up the sun and watching the regular dolphin visitors frolic in the surf. There are only 10 rooms with en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning, tea/coffee making facilities, satellite TV, bar fridge and safe.

If you are feeling active there is a good surf school nearby and in season it is possible to organise seafari boat tours out into the bay to see Humpback Whales. Ballito is also a good base for a day tip into Durban where you can head to the world class uShaka Marine World Ocean theme park and explore the bustling Indian Market. The hotel can also organise horse riding, on-site spa treatments, marine trips, canoeing, gym visits and fishing.

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
