WONDERFUL WEATHER

This scenic stretch of KwaZulu-Natal coastline is known as the Hibiscus Coast. The area boasts a wonderful warm subtropical climate (& corresponding warm ocean waters) year-round. The climate is conducive, not only for tourism throughout the year, but for cultivating subtropical crops like sugarcane & bananas – which you’ll see aplenty in lush plantations on the rolling hills. These green hills provide a pleasing backdrop to the golden sands of the beaches and the blue waters of the Indian Ocean.

BEAUTIFUL BEACHES

Ramsgate Beach is a Blue Flag Beach – one of only eight such beaches in KwaZulu-Natal. A Blue Flag is an award given to beaches which meet the stringent criteria of the International Blue Flag Campaign, managed in South Africa by the Wildlife & Environmental Society of South Africa (WESSA). Blue Flag status assures you that beaches are clean, safe & environmentally friendly. A 6km beach walk – the Ramsgate Marine Ramble – links the many coves and beaches of the greater area, from Southbroom in the South to Margate in the North.

 

NATURE & THE ENVIRONMENT

This is an area blessed with beautiful scenery – from indigenous coastal & riverine forest, golden beaches & the blue Indian Ocean. The many gorges, lagoons & rivers add to the scenery. Bird life is abundant & larger game can be seen in the surrounding nature reserves. Then there’s the rich marine life found off the coast – including plenty of shark species, whales & dolphins. The Community of Ramsgate is very proud of the natural beauty of Ramsgate & works hard to conserve and promote it as much as possible.

HERITAGE & HISTORY

Ramsgate’s colurful past contributes to its vibrant spirit, today. The area’s Zulu inhabitants were later joined by a mix-match of English, German, Dutch & Indian people. From a small farming & trading community the town had, by the 1930s  established itself as a popular holiday resort for upcountry folk to take in the sunshine and sea air, whilst enjoying fine cuisine in a warm & friendly atmosphere. In this modern age of fast food & here-today-gone-tomorrow establishments, it’s good to know that you will still be treated with good, old-fashioned hospitality right here in Ramsgate!

ARTS & CULTURE

The sea is often cited as a creative inspiration; this must be one of the reasons why so many artists & other creative people have settled in Ramsgate over the years.

POPULATION

With just 1500 permanent residents, Ramsgate is the quintessential small seaside village! English, Afrikaans and Zulu are all commonly spoken here, as well as some Xhosa (given the town’s proximity to the Eastern Cape).

SAFETY AND SECURITY

Escape the rat race & rest awhile in a place which offers a respite from city life – a safe & secure environment, strong community spirit & concern for nature & the environment make Ramsgate one of the very best places, not only to holiday, but in which to live & work, too. It’s no wonder so many holiday makers come back here – & many times for good!
