Groom’s Pantry, Ramsgate

Groom’s Pantry, Ramsgate

Sometimes the best beaches are not the biggest, or the boldest or visible from the road. Sometimes, and I mean just sometimes, you have to venture a little further to find that nugget of a spot. There are so many wonderful beaches that are easily accessible and great family fun, but, Ramsgate’s Blue Flag main swimming beach is one of my favourites on the KZN South Coast. If you take a stroll south on the Ramsgate Ramble path, you’ll come across a hidden treasure in this part of the world, called Groom’s Pantry.

Another KZN South Coast gem to look forward to

This secluded rocky bay, less than 1km south of the main beach, is the perfect spot for a sundowner, or just to grab yourself a little piece of calm at the start (or end) of a busy day. Sit on a bench and watch the whales and dolphins frolic meters away, or just breathe the sea air.

The KZN South Coast has several family friendly, blue flag beaches to enjoy.
