The Sardine Run!
Pennington is a tranquil little South Coast village, fifteen kilometres to the south of Scottburgh, blessed with gorgeous beaches that back up against a coastal forest. It was originally a farm owned by the Pennington family, hence the name. It has superb beaches, excellent golf courses, natural wild life and sub tropical weather all year round which make it the perfect holiday destination. The town is set on a hillside looking down onto the Warm Indian Ocean where you can swim all year round.
During the Winter months visitors can enjoy watching the Whales and dolphins that eagerly follow
thousands of sardines during the annual sardine run.
With many top quality golf courses on offer, the KZN South Coast is fondly known among golfers as the "Golf Coast". We have a lovely portfolio of self catering accommodation here in Pennington.
