Sodwana Bay Town Full HD Gallery

This is a comprehensive picture guide to Sodwana Bay Town and what to expect when you travel here. I will also tell you about where to find the best places to eat, get free wifi and places to stay #SodwanaBayAccommodation.

As you know Sodwana bay is a scuba diving and fishing/spearfishing paradise and people from all over the world flock here all year round eager to jump into the cool water and see the magical underwater reefs and abundance of sea life. Just the other day a new species of sea horse was discovered here so you can imagine the possibilities this place holds.

Sodwana is not a big town. It consists of a few shops and restaurants and then the rest are diving lodges and accommodation establishments. There are plenty of travelers here and you will soon make new friends and share your underwater experiences. So without taking up any more of your time let me show you just what you are in for when you plan to visit this beautiful place.

Take note it was overcast when I took these images, but rest assured that you’ll get plenty of sunshine and its hot here in the summer months November to Middle April. Towards the end of the gallery there are some sunshine pics yay.

So before you enter the town there are some lodges further up close to Mbazwana and then also lodges down at the beach like Coral Divers which is probably the biggest dive operation here and also Mseni Beach Lodge

A note on traveling with your pet, some lodges here don’t allow pets in and under no circumstances do they allow dogs, even small ones on the beach. There are pet sitters around but I mostly rely on friends to look after Liefert when I go spearfishing.

Start of Sodwana Town. Turn left here for Mabibi and Reef Teach dive lodge

Driving towards Mabibi is quite a mission and you have to have 4×4 or a van that can handle the soft beach sand roads. Although I have not been there myself I did go to Lala Nek and Black Rock which is the same way and its all sand roads. Black Rock and Lala Nek are two beautiful secluded beaches and has the calmest bays with plenty of reef sections.

This little place is quite cool, it might not look like much now but at night the tree in the middle lights up and it has a cozy atmosphere inside. There’s no loud music blaring in the background and its a nice place to relax and have a meal.

This place is my second home. It has free Wi-fi and the pizza’s here are one of the best I’ve had. Its a thin base pizza full of flavor and the price is not too bad either. The owners also lead the local church and although I can’t always afford something to buy they still let me use the Wi-fi and are always kind to me, which is truly a blessing.

Sodwana Bay Church Entrance Gate Right


This local church is open on Sundays from 4.30pm till about 6pm. It is not a traditional church building but rather at the owners of the lighthouse restaurant’s house. Traveling can be tiresome and sometimes be spiritually draining and yet when you enter this little church you immediately feel revived because of the friendly and cozy atmosphere and can feel the love. Cell group is on Tuesdays from 5pm to about 6;30pm and this is when we all just get together and have fellowship with other Christians. We have pizza evenings and there never a shortage of sweet treats that the ladies prepare. They also have pastors coming from Durban sometimes to give a sermon and helps us connect with other churches.
