South Coast Sun

The South Coast Sun, being over forty years old, is a veteran publication that has consistently provided the Upper South Coast and Amanzimtoti with high quality and well researched local news. Our journalistic excellence has been recognised by our parent company, Caxton, and we have collected a plethora of Caxton awards over the years. In adhering to the Press Code of Conduct, we pride ourselves on a commitment to a strong sense of media ethics: this, we believe, has been a crucial element in building a relationship with our readers that is characterised by trust. Additionally, we are often ahead of the ahead of the trend, thus breaking important news before other publications do.

In terms of being a vital source of information when it comes to local retail offerings, we can confidently assert that our retail inserts combine to make “a shopping mall between covers”. Community members are kept abreast of the prices of a wide range of goods, and retailers are similarly afforded a great opportunity to reach their customers.

We are also pleased that our online presence has managed to maintain the very high standards we have set for the print version (distributed to over 20 000 readers weekly). As far as we are concerned, the paper has a bright future and we look forward to realising its full potential in the years to come.
