Situated within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park & UNESCO World Heritage Site, the resort offers world class diving combined with a PADI 5 Star Career Development Centre and dive school. Close and convenient accommodation in a range to suit all budgets – Ensuite Cabins (for the more discerning diver), Standard Cabins with private bathrooms, or the Standard Cabins and Safari Tents, we have something for everyone.

The warm and friendly atmosphere at Coral Divers lends itself to a social and relaxed experience for families and scuba divers alike. The lodge is nestled in the coastal dune forest and surrounded by pristine bush, with an array of bird and small wildlife visitors that are prevalent inside the national park.
