Welcome to Ballito, a rapidly growing town in KwaZulu Natal, northward of Durban. Once a vacation destination, Ballito is now attracting many permanent residents. Residential property buyers are especially attracted to secure estates like the Simbiti Eco-Estate and Brettonwood Coastal Estate which have been developed on land that was previously used for sugar cane farming.
This town was founded in 1954 and has turned into an elegant suburb with a population of about 30 000 in 2015. It is an ideal residential area that attracts young couples and families that are starting up in life. The recent population boom in Ballito has led to a development of various gated estates in and around the area.
Ballito doesn't only attract the locals whom are buying houses in and around the area but tourists as well, which in return attracts business investments. The large commercial business park bordering the N2 freeway, the new hotels and the resorts that are being built around the area are turning Ballito into a flourishing community and tourism destination.
A favourite among retirees, Ballito also offers seniors a choice of several secure developments now, including Tinley Manor, part of the Palm Lakes development, the sectional title Forest Village at Brettonwood and the Savannadevelopment in the Simbithi Eco Estate.

The name Ballito, which is an Italian translation for "little ball", was borrowed from a glossy advertisement for Ballito hosiery created by Ballito Hosiery Limited of St. Albans in England but today Ballito is not a little ball anymore. This trendy South African holiday town caters to an ever expanding business community on the KwaZulu Natal North Coast. In recent years, the town has grown exponentially leading to a development of three huge shopping malls and a plan of building schools in the area.
Summers in Ballito are warm with an average temperature of about 27.6°C and 22.4°C in winters, which maybe an explanation to the occasional sightings of bottlenose dolphins riding waves in this stretch of the coastline, so much so that it is dubbed the Dolphins Coast. The water in this area is clear all year long and relatively shallow making it easier for dolphins to feed close to the shore. Whales can occasionally be seen on their annual migration to the Mozambique seaside for summer.
