Tripadvisor reviews

Welcome to The Merry Crab

Come and experience Kwa Zulu Natal’s best-kept secret; a charming, informal and secure self-catering holiday hideaway carved out of the lush tropical vegetation of the Admiralty Reserve. From the resort, a shaded pathway through bush inhabited by duiker and dassie leads to golden sands and the warm blue ocean where schools of dolphin frolic in the waves and whales drift lazily by.

 

The area enjoys year-round sunshine and the balmy weather continues throughout the winter. Safe bathing and surfing, fabulous fishing and diving, stretches of unspoiled beach, restaurants, attractions and friendly locals make our little piece of paradise the perfect South African tropical holiday destination.
