If itís anything that South Africans really appreciate that ranks higher than soap operas, sports and boerewors, itís frolicking in the ocean. Spending a day at the beach for South Africans is as normal as spending a day at home. Because there are so many activities you can engage in while at the beach. So if youíre an avid scuba diver, then South Africaís the place to be on your next holiday.
Believe it or not, there is a variety of excellent scuba diving facilities located right in the heart of Johannesburg.
