About Us

Our high quality print magazine has been going for over 21 years!
This pocket size A6 glossy magazine serves our Community as an informative Guide and Directory of what is available on the South Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal.
The Pulse Magazine was originally established in January 1998 with the aim to get information to the public, both for local residents and also for the many visitors and tourists who frequent our coastline on a regular basis.
Through its duration in the first couple of years it went through a few changes in size, being A5 to A6, and then the name from “The Entertainer” to “The South Coaster” and then finally to what we all now have come to know as
“The Pulse of the KZN South Coast”.
