Port Shepstone is situated on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal, 45 minutes drive from Durban. It is the largest town on the Kwazulu Natal south coast and their are excellent properties in Port Shepstone. Port Shepstone is the administrative, commercial, distribution and transport centre of the South Coast. The town is named after former Natal Secretary for Native Affairs Theophilus Shepstone.

It was founded in 1867 when marble deposits were discovered on both river banks near the mouth of the Mzimkulu River. The Port Shepstone harbour was immediately built at the opening of the river mouth for marine trade. The first coaster entered the harbour on the 8 May 1880 and inaugurated regular trade between Durban and Port Shepstone. The main exports for many years after that were marble slabs, sugar and lime.

Many settlers of different origin boosted the town's economy and some of the settlers immediately noticed the potential for seafaring trade and devoted their time and energy into developing the harbour and its facilities. By 1893 Port Shepstone was functioning as a full fiscal harbour. However, when the railway from Durban reached Port Shepstone, the harbour was doomed. It fell into disuse and eventually the river silted up again making it impossible to use.
