Top 5 romantic hidden gems near Kokstad

Kokstad and its surroundings, with its understated charisma, is a magical part of KwaZulu Natal, conveniently located just three hours from Durban and less than an hour from Port Shepstone along the South Coast. This beautiful region holds numerous discreet and undiscovered romantic spots, far away from the usual tourist routes.

Situated amidst seemingly boundless indigenous forests, the region is an ideal destination for couples seeking a secluded escape, especially those in search of the perfect spot for a wedding proposal!

Dean Gilder, ANEW Resort Ingeli Forest Kokstad’s General Manager, recommends these five off-the-beaten-path places for a more intimate and charming location for a romantic breakaway.

1. Mountain Currie Reserve, Kokstad:
Voted the top attraction on TripAdvisor in the area, head to Mountain Currie Reserve in Kokstad for a romantic and scenic setting. This nature reserve offers striking views of the surrounding landscapes and mountains. Take a hike to one of the panoramic viewpoints within the reserve, such as Mount Currie, and enjoy a romantic moment with the stunning Drakensberg Mountains in the background.

2. The Flitwick Ranch Deli
Explore The Flitwick Ranch Deli, located in the laid-back hills of the Southern Drakensberg. This easy-going spot sits on a working ranch with a history dating back to the late 1800’s. Surrounded by manicured gardens, calming water and rolling hills, it’s a relaxed settling to enjoy a picnic with treats from their impressive deli.

3. Lighthouse dreams
Venture a little bit further with a 45-minute drive from Kokstad to The Port Edward Lighthouse, gracing the stunning South Coast. Its towering presence against the backdrop of the Indian Ocean provides a dramatic scene with the rhythmic sounds of the crashing waves and panoramic views of the coastline. Though no longer open to the public, the lighthouse, stands as a symbol of steadfastness and guidance, providing a metaphorical foundation for a love.

4. The La Vita Spa
