Rocktail Bay is situated in the northern reaches of South Africa's Greater St Lucia Wetland Park. The area is wild and without any development. It offers a solitude that is found in few places on earth.

Rocktail Bay is metres inland from the warm Indian Ocean and some of the most incredible beaches in all of South Africa. In total there is 40 kilometres of undisturbed private Indian Ocean coastline, which is rich in marine life. The waves meet endless and diverse beaches where it is possible to walk for hours without meeting another soul or seeing a building.
