The Maputaland coastline, south from Kosi Mouth for c. 26 km, ending north of Black Rock; predominantly sandy beaches. Only one count is available (Jan. 1996), which produced one of the highest totals of Little Tern recorded during the survey period; it was exceeded only by the maximum counts from Lake St Lucia and the Tugela River mouth. No threats have been identified.
