Getting to Mar e Sol and Ponta do Ouro

Drive via the Kosi Bay border, open from 08:00 till 17:00, 7 days a week. The last few kilometres between Mar e Sol and the border must be crossed using a 4×4. This is very important as the roads are very soft and sandy. Normal vehicles will not be allowed to make the journey. It is also important that you let your tyres down before you leave the border (between 1.2 and 1.5 bars).

If you do not own a 4×4, you can park your car at the border at the cost of R30 per day at Skelm’s Parking (082 624 6518) which is secure. You can arrange for a border transfer to Mar e Sol by calling 00258 84 330-3859 (Moya Kite and Surf).
