Ramsgate is a seaside resort on the south coast.

Ramsgate is a seaside resort on the south coast and is a very popular holiday destination. Ramsgate is located on the mouth of a river known by the Zulu name Bilanhlolo ("the marvellous boiler") for the bubbles caused by strong currents making it look like the water is boiling.

Ramsgate is very busy over the summer holidays in December and has protected swimming, a tidal pool as well as a fresh water pool, and a lagoon. It especially draws young crowds over the holidays.


Has a quaint village atmosphere and beachfront holiday cottages nestling amongst the indigenous coastal bush which is so typical of this subtropical region. The beaches, lagoons and glorious walks along the sandy shore are enjoyed by visitors who prefer something more relaxing. The fishing is good, the birdlife fantastic and the living is easy. The ara has a prolific birdlife, and many a quiet corner can be found to delight the prospective birder – silent lagoons, sheltered forests, rugged wooded gorges and rolling open grasslands offer a wealth of birdlife. Here one will find some of the best bird watching spots in southern Africa. The southern Kwazulu Natal region offers a combined list of 386 species – well over one third of the total number of birds recorded in the entire southern Africa sub region. The wide variety of habitats, from caost and wetland environment to forest, woodland and grassland, are the primary source of this richness. But above all, it is the forest birding that is unparalleled. Forest birds with their brilliant colouration and secretive habits, provide the most rewarding nad challenging birding of all.
