Margate is a seaside resort that is popular with tourists. It is situated on the Hibiscus Coast about 20 km from Port Shepstone.

The town was established in 1908 by Henry Richardson. He named it after the English town of Margate.

Much of the attraction for tourists has something to do with the sea. There are sandy beaches which are ideal for sunbathing, surfing and snorkelling. There also rocky areas which attract fisherman and those wishing to explore the coastline.

Margate also offers many restaurants and pubs as well as a variety of holiday accommodation.
