Situated on the southern edge of the Dolphin Coast, this little village forms part of a coastal conservancy that offers the best whale-watching spots. Properties in La Mercy are becoming more and more popular due to its proximity to the two booming coastal business hubs, Ballito and Durban.
La Mercy is a fairly small town with only about 450 households living along the La Mercy Lagoon. Here you will find tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and feel drawn in by its small-town charm. There are many shops and restaurants nearby so you are not completely removed from the rest of the civilization and the N2 is just a stone’s throw away, making commuting easy. However, if you want to take a nice long drive along the beach, then the old beach road along this part of the coastline is accessible and offers gorgeous views.
Property in La Mercy has easy access to some of the best beaches in KwaZulu-Natal, giving the town a permanent holiday atmosphere. Ballito beaches are also nearby as well as Shaka’s Rock where there is a long stretch of sandy beach and a refreshing tidal pool.
