The Hatchery Winter 2021 Update

As we type this blog it is Lockdown Level 4 again and we are awaiting the announcement of the speech on 11 July to see whether we continue on Level 4 or move to a level less restrictive.

We are grateful that we are allowed to receive and entertain guests during the Winter months where we have cool weather that is still beach and lagoon friendly and chilly nights we can enjoy by the fire. We however feel for those who are negatively impacted by the closure of their business and the lack of income that is being experienced.

Philocalists Visit

We had the pleasure of once again being on the route of the Philocaly Trail. The Hatchery is stop one after a long 17km beach walk on Day one and the start of Day two.  The event, which was founded in 2019 by Nikki Williamson, is in an effort to raise awareness of the KwaZulu-Natal’s’  pristine coastline while also addressing the threats our ocean is facing.  What sets Philocaly apart from other registered trails is that it is not a race to finish as it has no official clocked time – it is to enjoy the coastline, have a dip in the ocean or a snorkel and recognise the love that participants have for the coast, the ocean and everything in it. #PhilocalyTrail - Read more info on this.

Winter Blues? Why not book a weekend at the Hatchery? 

The kids are out of school and this has to be one of the best venues to be in South Africa in Winter. Warm enough to swim in the ocean and chill enough for outdoor activities.

Some reasons to book at The Hatchery for a weekend are: The Hatchery unique accommodation, the lagoon, the ocean, the view, fishing (we have perch, rockcod, grunter, kingfish and more), kayaking, SUP boarding, canoeing, paddling, swimming, hiking, mountain biking, chilling in the pool, chilling by the fire, chilling on the beach, famous wedding venue, team building and conferences, remote working if you have to do the grind, good vibes and excellent times.
