Village Life in Ballito

There’s something incredibly special about visiting a beachside village – and downtown Ballito is no exception. Along with warm, nostalgic feels and childhood memories of sandy toes, the Ballito village has a range of exceptional quality, top-class eateries and a five-star beauty spa. Here are 3 of our favourite spots …
