Matric holiday accommodation hot spots

Anna Lourens in Matrics 


As a South African school-leaver, the matric holiday towards the end of the year is tradition! Finally you can celebrate the end of twelve years of school and embrace the transition into adulthood.

Matric RAGE

You will want to go where your friends go. Fun in the sun seems to be the general mood!

Places like Ballito, Plettenberg Bay, Margate and Umhlanga are the most popular matric holiday destinations.

These places are well-known for their natural beauty, sun and sea, but also for their student deals and packages, of which RAGE has become a household name.

Summer, sun and sea

In keeping with the sun and sea holiday trend, many coastal towns from Kwa-Zulu Natal to the Eastern Cape – like Jeffreys Bay and Hartenbos – welcome matrics every December. By knowing where to look, finding matric holiday accommodation is easy.

If you want to travel outside of South Africa, the MSC Cruises are popular. Many cruises travel to Portuguese Islands on the coast of Mozambique for under R5 000. Ponta do Ouro also offers student deals if you wish to travel to Mozambique by land.
