The Cowries Accommodation


If you’re planning on coming to Africa’s top surf and lifestyle events in Ballito this year, then you sure know how to have a good time with Accommodation!

It’s times like these, as fun as they are, where accommodation in Ballito is few and far between. Fortunately, we have super low prices during that time, at only R 1000.00 per chalet per night! Take a look at our Accommodation and Facilities page for more details about why this is great value for money.


If you weren’t planning on coming to the event, then you might want to see what Olivia Jones Communications has to say about it:

“The competition will run from July 1 to 7 and is the African continent’s only internationally rated professional surf event. Since its inception, the Mr Price Pro Ballito has earned a reputation as Africa’s biggest and best surf, beach and lifestyle event, with the Mr Price Pro Ballito Beach Festival that runs simultaneously with the competition.

Gangs of Ballet

“As well as boasting impressive retail opportunities, the festival seeks to provide constant and varied entertainment- the highlight of which is the Free Music Concerts taking place at Salt Rock on the 4th, 5th and 6th July. The stage will host almost twenty bands over three days, including such talented and renowned acts as, Gangs of Ballet, aKing, and iSceam and the Chocolate Stix. The headlining acts for Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be Big Nuz, Prime Circle, and Pascal & Pearce respectively. Prime Circle boast an equally prestigious career, with several record-breaking albums to their name. In 2011, they won the MK Award for Best International Breakthrough Act. In addition to this, leading DJ’s- DJ Milkshake, and DJ Dino Bravo, will be closing acts at the concert. DJ Milkshake has gained a reputation as one of South Africa’s most versatile DJs, with a multicultural appeal that won him his own show on 5fm radio in 2010, The Shakedown. DJ Dino Bravo’s Latin inspi red beats earned his 2003 album Bravomania platinum status, an achievement that he has only built upon since then. With acts of such calibre set to rock the stage, the Beach Festival’s free concerts look set to be a real hit.

“The concerts are just one aspect of the Beach Festival’s impressive array of entertainments, however. Guests will also have the opportunity to make the most of the festival’s Beach Mania programme, which aims to get children and adults alike involved in beach sports, making the most of the event’s location. The KwaDukuza LED Sports Unit and the RedCap Foundation will also be hosting soccer leagues and fun days throughout the duration of the festival, with the goal of entertaining and integrating young people from all social groups. For those who prefer spectating to participating, last year’s hugely popular extreme sports demonstrations return to the festival once more, with BMX, breakdance, wakeskate and Parkour showcases set to wow the crowds. The event will also provide a stage for various educational campaigns, including initiatives concerning the effect of clima te change on local coastlines.

“As if that weren’t enough, this year’s extravaganza will see the addition of a three day Food and Wine festival running from July 2 to 4, enabling crowds to experience new tastes and ensure that absolutely all of their senses are satisfied.”

Now that sounds like a great way to spend the first week of July! Once again, if you need some well-priced, self catering accommodation in Durban during that time, feel free to contact us.
