The only town in the world to be situated in a World Heritage site, the iSimangaliso Wetlands Park.
The beauty of the town is unsurpassed and with the strict regulations, the town won’t be able to get much bigger than it currently is. Thus offering exclusivity to property owners in St Lucia. This doesn’t mean that the town is a small sleepy town - it is quite the opposite during the summer months when tourists flock here to experience the natural splendour of the town.
The little town of St Lucia serves as something of a tourist hub for the park and has grown substantially from the sleepy little hollow, perched below a canopy of trees, to the feeder town that is geared for domestic eco tourism today. There are myriad accommodation options, restaurants, supermarkets and other tourist facilities within the town that make a stay here pretty effortless.
Don't be alarmed when you see a hippo roaming the streets on your night out and about!
