The Aliwal Shoal is rated by Jacques Cousteau as one of the top 10 dive spots in the world. The marine life of the shoal is said to be spectacular. Raggies or ragged tooth sharks (also known as grey nurse sharks) are regularly spotted between August and November as they use the area to mate. They are, despite looking like hunters of the deep, rather docile. In fact, in the history of diving the shoal, there has been no recorded attack from a shark. You are more likely to spot them close to a famous area known as the 'raggy caves'.
The South Coast Beaches
The South Coast of South Africa boasts spectacular beaches, and weather to boot. The warm Indian Ocean waters and the long stretches of sand make for the ideal conditions in which to swim, surf, snorkel, and suntan.
The South Coast is also home to several Blue Flag beaches, which means that these ones have met the strict criteria and are in line with some of the finest beaches around the world. These include Ramsgate, Hibberdene, Margate, and Marina beaches. Some of the other South Coast beaches are St Michaels on Sea, Lucien Beach, Banana Beach, Clansthal Beach, and Southbroom.
