Tinley – A significant tourism potential

Friday, September 14, 2018


Tinley –tourism potentialTinley is Tongaat Hulett’s one of the northern development efforts and one of important tourism potential. With kilometers of immaculate shoreline, lagoon, indigenous coastal forest and a significant feature within KwaZulu-Natal’s primary growth corridor, Tinley is exclusively placed to drive tourism development. By now, four major international resort operators have shown their interest to operate a new, international beach resort on the site, the first of its kind in Southern Africa.

Jointly with the proposed new coastal resort, Tinley will serve the international and domestic tourism markets with possibility for mixed-use development as well. To quote Michael Deighton, Tongaat Hulett, Developments Managing Director, “Tourism has been identified as both a national and provincial priority and together with the associated ancillary economic activities will have a significant impact on socio-economic growth and development in the region. To this end we have been working closely with the local and provincial government to present the opportunity to solicit national and international brands looking at opportunities to establish themselves in KwaZulu-Natal.”

Keeping in mind its sublime warm climate, gorgeous beaches, closeness to the berg and the bush and a myriad of natural assets, it’s no doubt that KwaZulu-Natal is the market leader in terms of domestic tourism in South Africa and ranks second in terms of international tourism. Starting with the launch of Zimbali Coastal Resort in the late 90s, north of Durban including uMhlanga, Ballito and Salt Rock have went through unprecedented growth in the last three decades with major return on investment.
