Morrungulo

This divine little coconut grove with its beach-fringed bay is primarily a sport fishing and diving location ideal for families. The first stunning views of the camping area are of lush green grass under gently swaying coconut palms – and a few steps away unspoilt, glistening white sands stretch in an arc from horizon to horizon. This is delightful Nelson’s Bay, named after the Zimbabwean family who owned the resort before 1975, and who, by buying the coconut palms, managed to hold onto it through the dark years when the tourists stayed away. Old man Nelson died in 2004, but his son has taken over and is continually improving Morrungulo.
