About 100 km south of Durban lies the seaside town of Hibberdene.

It has a nice stretch of beach and is popular with holiday makers in South Africa.

The small shopping centre, serving the local residents, is a busy place over the weekend. What can't be bought in Hibberdene can normally be obtained in Port Shepstone which is a short distance to the south.

The town was named Hibberdene in honour of a former Postmaster-general of Natal C. Maxwell-Hibberd.

Popular activities in and around Hibberdene include diving, swimming, scuba and snorkelling. There are a variety of sports facilities nearby.
