Stunning long expanse of pristine uncrowded, unspoilt beaches with a large kiddies tidal pool, with clean well maintained toilets on the edge of beach, with the main beach providing life-guard supervision. Recently been upgraded and is 100% wheel chair friendly. Great surfing and fishing can be found right along the Southbroom coastline. The 3 beaches and glorious shoreline and is a delight for surfers, wind surfers and kite surfers. The Imbezane lagoon is ideal for kids, canoeists & windsurfers. Southbroom is suburb consisting of private homes and therefore never has that busy overcrowded feeling. There are great walks through lanes with beautiful shrubbery and wild flowers.
Southbroom’s history dates back to the year 1884 when Alfred Eyles, an English missionary from wick, near Bath, established a mission for the Society of Friends near the hill known as “Ntsaba” or, The Outlook. When he bought the area, however, he changed the name to Southbroom, after his Southbroom Hall family home in Wiltshire. Land surveyors, pleased to find a reminder of the ‘Old Country’, retained the name when officially declaring a town on the site in 1933.
