Set well back in a lush dune forest, Rocktail has 17 en-suite rooms, seven of which are family rooms each with a shared bathroom and two bedrooms, and one being a honeymoon suite. There is a central dining and lounge area with large wrap-around veranda and a raised deck, with wide views extending out to the ocean. A large pool, sunny deck and curio shop complete the main area.

The clear waters and endless golden sands of the Maputaland Marine Reserve allow for swimming, long walks, snorkelling and other seaside adventures. A range of family-friendly activities build wonderful childhood memories, and Ocean Safaris are the best way to explore the waters. World-class diving is conducted along coral reefs accessible only to Dive Centre guests, with snorkelling at Lala Nek for the whole family. Please note there are no life guards so swimming will be at own rick. Excursions are available to Lake Sibaya, Tembe Elephant Park and the local community, where guests can observe authentic aspects of Zulu and Tonga culture through architecture, food and traditional lifestyles and enjoy the star gazing.

During summer, guests can join our guides on a night Turtle Drive, with a good chance of seeing nesting turtles. Watching a 750 kg leatherback turtle heaving herself up the beach to lay eggs or hatchlings scrambling out of the sand and down the beach to the sea are both once-in-a-lifetime spectacles.
