Sodwana in Kwazulu-Natal is an exposed beach and reef break that has unreliable waves. Summer offers the best conditions for surfing. Offshore winds are from the northwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of sharks and rocks.

Visitor Reviews of Sodwana


Reefman from SOUTH AFRICA writes:

Sodwana Bay is not a great spot to go surfing. It is one of the top Scuba Diving and Deep Sea fishing sites in the world, so there are boats launching throughout the day.
