The KwaZulu-Natal North Coast is a great place to learn to scuba dive and do an open water or advanced course.

The water is warm, and Ballito is conveniently situated just north of Durban and not that far from the coral reefs of Maputaland.

Ballito might not have coral reefs, but it does have coral-encrusted reefs with all the attendant pretty colourful tropical fish.
